Women’s History Month: Meet Christine Richard from Amerijet
MIA is the busiest U.S. airport for international freight, handling air trade valued at over $52.7 billion annually. One of its leading cargo carriers is Amerijet, which ships more than 22,000 tons of freight through MIA every month. This week, let us introduce you to Amerijet’s Christine Richard, a 29-year veteran of the global cargo airline.
· Tell us a little about your role at MIA.
As Sr. Director of Marketing for Amerijet International Airlines, I am focused on growing Amerijet’s customer loyalty strategies, branding, and communication across our global footprint. The heart of Amerijet’s operation is and has always been (for almost 50 years) “Miami.” Promoting the Miami gateway, logistics infrastructure, and building local and international relationships is part of who I am and what I do. I believe that my passion and commitment contribute to our goal of connecting people, businesses and improving lives.
· What’s your favorite part about working at MIA?
From a business standpoint, I am immensely humbled and honored to be a part of the growth and transformation of our industry. The Miami transportation/supply chain and logistics industry has set the stage for Miami to be one of the largest international gateways for years to come.
From a personal standpoint, I immensely enjoy the diverse culture, the people… and the great food.
· What do you enjoy doing during your free time?
I enjoy spending time with family, attending outdoor events and festivals. I like walking on the beach and sharing a meal with friends.
· What’s one piece of advice that’s really stuck with you?
“You are only as good as your last success.”
The world has “short-term” memory. We need to continuously evaluate the “who, what, when, where, why, and how,” and reach for new heights.
· What would you tell your past self?
Explore every opportunity, don’t be scared to fail.
