Mark has held several positions across the industry over his twenty-one years in cargo from trucking companies to handling agents to airlines. He started out as a loadmaster for Air Hong Kong and then held positions at several other companies including BOC Aviation, Galaxy Air Cargo, Dragonair, MyTravel and then Thomas Cook where he assumed the role of Cargo Manager before the cargo function was outsourced by the airline in 2010.
