FedEx Appoints New Managing Director of Sales for the Middle East, Indian Sub-Continent And Sub-Sahara Africa Region




  FedEx Appoints New Managing Director of Sales for the Middle East, Indian Sub-Continent And Sub-Sahara Africa Region

  April 22nd, 2001 Dubai, UAE

  FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, has announced the appointment of Jude Fonseka as its Managing Director of Sales for the Middle East, Indian Sub-Continent and Sub-Sahara Africa region. Based in Dubai, Fonseka will assume overall responsibility for increasing revenue through the sales function for the region, leading a team of six District Sales Managers to achieve their financial goals.

  Jude Fonseka first joined FedEx in 1989 as the Country Coordinator for Colombo, Sri Lanka. In 1992, he moved to the UAE and was appointed Senior Account Executive. His next promotion was in 1996 when he became District Sales Manager, then Senior Sales Manager for India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in 1997. In that same year, Fonseka moved to Mumbai to set up the FedEx Sales operation in India, where he stayed until his recent return to FedEx in the UAE.

 Some of the outstanding achievements in Fonseka’s 12-year career with FedEx have been the successful expansion of FedEx’ operations into India, including setting up a new sales team of over 50 professionals and establishing FedEx’ freight sales in the region in 1989. Fonseka has over 22 years of experience in the aviation industry having worked with Sri Lankan Airlines, Oman Aviation, Singapore Airlines and Flying Tigers, which became a subsidiary of FedEx Corporation in 1989.

 With annual revenues of $20 billion, FedEx Corp. is the premier global provider of transportation, e-commerce and supply chain management services. The company offers integrated business solutions through a network of subsidiaries operating independently, including: FedEx Express, the world's largest express transportation company; FedEx Ground, North America's second largest provider of small-package ground delivery service; FedEx Freight, a leading provider of regional less-than-truckload freight services; FedEx Custom Critical, the world's largest provider of expedited time-critical shipments; and FedEx Trade Networks, a provider of customs brokerage, consulting, information technology and trade facilitation solutions.
