Johns led the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois until his retirement with the rank of general in January 2013, capping a 36-year military career. He is currently executive vice president of FlightSafety International, headquartered in New York, where he leads the design, manufacture and support of flight simulation equipment and flight training services to government and military organizations worldwide.
Randy Rademacher, chairman of ATSG, said Johns brings to ATSG’s board an understanding of strategic planning and analysis, as well as expertise in setting and achieving the highest standards of performance for complex air networks under challenging conditions.
“ATSG is fortunate to be able to add someone with Ray’s remarkable experience and service commitment to our board. I’m confident he will contribute both strategic vision and valuable operating perspectives to the oversight work we do on behalf of ATSG’s shareholders,” Rademacher said.
Johns said he knew of ATSG through its contributions to the Air Mobility Command as a longtime provider of combi (combined freighter/passenger aircraft) services and other air cargo support to military locations around the world.
“Companies like ATSG play a vital part in the array of resources that keep both military and commercial supply networks operating smoothly around the world,” Johns said said. “I look forward to working with ATSG’s board members as we determine how best to achieve its mission for growth and profitability in the years to come.”
ATSG is a provider of aircraft leasing and air cargo transportation and related services to domestic and foreign air carriers and other companies that outsource their air cargo lift requirements.
