WILMINGTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Air Transport Services Group, Inc., (Nasdaq: ATSG) today announced the appointment of Trisha Frank to the role of Vice President of Government Programs.

"ATSG has always been committed to providing the best possible service to U.S. government agencies," said Rich Corrado, president and chief executive officer of ATSG, "and Trisha’s work at Omni has substantially strengthened our relationships with government customers. Extending Trisha’s in-depth knowledge and leadership to the corporate level will ensure that our service commitment never wavers as we continue to grow this important facet of our business.”
Frank joined Omni in 1995 and was promoted to Director of Marketing in 1997, overseeing the airline’s charter sales and Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) contract with the U.S. Department of Defense.
