WLN Management Team

Edward Downey – President & Founder

I have been involved in the International freight forwarding business for over 41 years and served my time at various levels within the industry. Starting my career on a motor bicycle and working my way up the corporate ladder in various roles at Williams Airfreight, Lep International, Cassin Air Transport and then taking that big step to working for myself in 1985. Up until February 2015 I was Managing Director and owner of independent freight forwarding business airsea Ireland, and decided to sell after 30 years to pursue a career in NETWORKING.

To this end WLN was formed and the many challenges that setting up a unique worldwide brand presents. Today WLN is steadily growing, and providing many transportation options by Air, Road and Sea in a logistics chain, for its premium membership all under one roof. International freight forwarding, Logistics, domestic home moves, niche markets like pet transportation, excess baggage, AOG , exhibition and Special Project Services. I believe with my experience at various levels in our industry and contacts round the Globe, that WLN will provide a platform for companies wishing to expand and grow their businesses on a worldwide stage. I am a past President of IACI – Irish Air Cargo Institute 1996 / 1997 , and served on various boards, like CPN – Cargo Partners Network, and ICARUS. I am offering my expertise to members who wish to join WLN and I will take a proactive role in helping members to grow their businesses. Where we do not have a member we will recommend a suitable partner to meet all your needs and long term requirements.
