Super Eight An Ode To Jan Krems

Manon, Max, Jan and Boris Krems

     Read somewhere to say Happy Work Anniversaryto Jan Krems for eight big ones at United Cargo.
     How about thanks for being a great human being? That you certainly are. A bag of chips and a cold Heineken wish to you on this warm Summer's Day in 2022.
     When Jan Krems began his tenure eight years ago as President and top cargo executive at United Airlines Worldwide Cargo we wrote:
     “Winston Churchill said of Franklin Roosevelt that 'meeting him was like uncorking your first bottle of champagne,' which is exactly what talking to Jan Krems feels like."
     Face-to-face, or on Zoom, take your pick, Jan comes across as a very broad thinker and a brilliant air cargo mind. But he also is a very approachable guy who knows how to both motivate people and thought and have some fun as well.
     United Cargo business is on fire all over the world setting new records.
     Airline of the year? United is airline for every year!
     Right Now Krems and his team have UA Cargo out front and pulling away from every other U.S. flag combination carrier in the air cargo business.
     Don't know if we will ever see the vintage of that grape we hear you have raised, kegged and have stashed somewhere.
     That you are the class of the business, inventive, original and the True Blue man in the world following airline greats from the Netherlands, including Jacques Ancher, Pieter Bouw, Jan H. Meurer, and Jan Kok, who was a very Blue ops guy and true blue soul of the airline, with whom we swapped stories and drank beer.
     But Jan is the right guy at the right time, an all-star air cargo man who along with his team has made United Cargo first class in every way.
     Eight years is more than you might have wanted but you made the most of it and those of us who are lucky to have worked beside you only want more. So forgive us, as we wonder if God would please let us go on this way.
     Superbedankt, Jan
