New CEO of DHL Express to focus on growth
John Pearson, who became CEO of DHL Express and member of the Board on 1 January 2019, is expecting continued positive developments for the global express market and the company, thanks to booming cross-border e-commerce and digitalisation.
Commenting on the role John Pearson asserts: “DHL Express has experienced a tremendous success story over the last ten years, where its annual top line growth has made substantial financial contributions for the Group. This development was very much driven by our dedication to quality, the uncompromising engagement of our 100,000 employees worldwide and the insane customer centric culture.
“I am proud to take Express to the next level. We will use all existing channels to transform every opportunity into top line growth. We are modernising our regional and intercontinental air fleet, we will continue to invest in our international infrastructure and innovative technologies, while making sure to further align our delivery processes with the needs of our customers in order to maintain our excellent level of customer experience and satisfaction.”
Pearson was instrumental for DHL Express’ decade long success story and expects growth figures to continue in 2019 and beyond for the Express division of the Group. Pearson took over from Ken Allen who became CEO of the newly established DHL eCommerce Solutions division.
“We are pleased to have John Pearson join our Corporate Board,” states Frank Appel, CEO Deutsche Post DHL Group. “He has a proven track record and a deep understanding of the Express business. John’s extensive operational knowledge and business experience within the division will ensure a continuation of the successful growth path of DHL Express in the years to come.”
