January 22 - Air Charter Service has promoted Justin Lancaster from his current role as cargo director to the new position of group commercial director.

Lancaster takes over the role of group commercial director from Justin Bowman - recently appointed vice chairman of the group, which was reported by HLPFI on November 7, 2013.

"With the management restructuring over the past moth or so, Justin Lancaster's transition to commercial director from cargo director was the natural progression in our eyes," said Chris Leach, founder and chairman of ACS.

Lancaster commented on his new role: "I will be working closely alongside Ruan Courtney - new managing director at ACS - to implement the board's initiatives going forward, while also remaining head of our global cargo division."

A profile of Ruan Courtney appears in the Jan/Feb edition of HLPFI.
