DHL Supply Chain: new appointments to ‘strengthen our company’s ability to streamline operations’

DHL Supply Chain (DSC) has announced strategic changes in its global leadership team. With a partial restructuring of roles and the addition of new members to the division’s Global Board of Management, DHL Supply Chain is positioning itself for the future.

“The global logistics landscape is shifting rapidly, with economic pressures and geopolitical complexities presenting new challenges and opportunities.   These new board members through their diverse perspectives and proven leadership will strengthen our company’s ability to streamline operations, explore new markets, implement innovative digitalization solutions and develop future-proof strategies for our continued success”, said Oscar de Bok, Global CEO of DHL Supply Chain.

Patrick Kelleher will assume the role of CEO of DHL Supply Chain North America effective July 1, 2024. Currently serving as Global Chief Development Officer, Kelleher will continue reporting directly to Oscar de Bok. With a tenure at DHL Group since 1992, he brings a wealth of experience from various management roles. His leadership as Global Chief Development Officer since 2018 has been pivotal in driving the division’s successful evolution, championing change and accelerated growth.

Kelleher will succeed Scott Sureddin, who will retire from DHL Group on December 31, 2024, after over 20 years of dedicated service. Sureddin leaves behind a legacy of significant contributions to the division’s culture and performance, not only within North America. Under his leadership the North American business doubled in size, setting a clear roadmap for future success. He was instrumental in the development of product solutions that addressed current and anticipated customer challenges ultimately cultivating a culture of continuous improvement.

Markus Voss is set to become the Chief Development Officer of DHL Supply Chain on July 1, 2024, succeeding Patrick Kelleher. Currently serving as the division’s Global Chief Information Officer and Chief Operations Officer, Voss has been instrumental in driving performance-focused standardization and implementation of new technologies, automation solutions, and robotics. In his new capacity as Chief Development Officer, Voss will lead the development of the business unit, additionally overseeing the teams of Service Logistics, Solutions Design, and all strategic growth products. Voss will continue to be part of DHL Supply Chain’s Global Board of Management.

This change will result in a split of Voss’s previous role. Sally Miller, currently Chief Information Officer for North America and Global Digital Transformation Officer, will assume the position of Global Chief Information Officer effective July 1, 2024, reporting to Oscar de Bok. Her expanded role will encompass her existing responsibilities as Digital Transformation Officer. Miller, who joined the company in 2005, has held various senior management positions throughout her tenure and will be part of the division’s Global Board of Management.

In addition, Mauricio Barros, currently Senior Vice President of Global Operations for DHL Supply Chain, will be elevated to the role of Global Chief Operations Officer effective July 1, 2024, reporting to Oscar de Bok. In this new capacity, he will oversee the division’s global operations.

In his new role Barros will be part of the division’s Global Board of Management.
