Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) elected Robert K. Coretz to its board of directors on Wednesday (20 February).
Coretz is a principal and founder of 10 Tanker Air Carrier, which engineers and modifies DC-10 aircraft for aerial firefighting and suppression purposes.
He is also the former board chairman of Omni Air International, a US based passenger airline that ATSG acquired in November 2018. He founded Omni Air International in 1993. Coretz was also a principal and founder of several aircraft leasing companies.
Randy Rademacher, board chairman of ATSG, said Coretz has in-depth knowledge of the technology of aircraft conversions, one of ATSG’s key strategic advantages, and also about the management of global airline operations.
Coretz said he is pleased to join the board of ATSG, which offers strong complementary capabilities that will enhance Omni’s services to its customers.
Coretz increases the number of ATSG directors to eight. He has been nominated for reelection to a one-year term on the board of directors at the next annual meeting of ATSG shareholders in May 2019.
