Formerly the company’s Chief Operating Officer for Swissport in the region, he took over from Frank Mena at the start of July, who retired after a 45-year career in the aviation industry, with 32 years dedicated to Swissport and its predecessor in the US.
Reporting to Camacho will be Stacey Brown who starts as regional Chief People Officer effective 31 July.
Brown has an extensive legal and HR career, starting in labour and employment litigation then moving into in-house counsel and HR positions.
She has served as Chief HR Officer for DB Schenker in the Americas and most recently was Chief HR Officer at First Hospitality.
“Our potential in the US and Canada is huge and we have been gearing up to grow our business – especially in the domestic arena where Swissport is not quite as well known yet,” says Warwick Brady, President & CEO of Swissport International AG. “We want to anchor our brand as the preferred partners for airlines – from network to no-frills carriers in the US and Canada. I am pleased Nelson has taken over the lead on this exciting journey.”
