Delta names new EMEA boss

A new boss for Europe, Middle East and Africa has been named by Delta Air Lines.

Nathaniel Pieper has been promoted to take up the Paris-based role in August.

He replaces Perry Cantarutti who leaves Delta on secondment to the SkyTeam global airline alliance as chief executive/managing director.

Pieper will be responsible for the airline’s regional commercial activities, including maximising the long-term growth opportunities for Delta’s joint venture with Air France/KLM and Alitalia as well as its partnership with Virgin Atlantic. He will report to Delta president, Ed Bastian.

Pieper was previously Delta’s vice president of fleet strategy and transactions, responsible for strategy, analysis, acquisition, disposition and investment in the carrier’s 1,300 mainline and regional aircraft.

Bastian said: “Nat’s outstanding record of strategic fleet management, combined with his experience of forging world-class partnerships, will keep Delta on course for success on the transatlantic, continuing the great work achieved under Perry Cantarutti.”
