Commenting on his new role, Mr Coretz said: 'At Omni Air International, we closely followed the development of ATSG since the Airborne days into a premier independent source of air cargo services to major worldwide organisations.
'I am eager to help sustain and shape its continued growth in new and expanding markets.'
Mr Coretz raises the number of ATSG directors to eight. He has been nominated for re-election to a one-year term on the board of directors at the next annual meeting of ATSG shareholders in May 2019.
