DHL Express has appointed Alberto Nobis (pictured above) as its new chief executive officer (CEO) for Europe paving the way for his return to the global management board of DHL Express.
Nobis was the global chief financial officer for DHL Express from 2009 to 2012 before relocating to his home country of Italy in 2013.
As CEO DHL Express Italy, Nobis helped to drive the division’s growth in the Italian market. Effective 1 January, 2019, he has taken over responsibility for DHL Express Europe from John Pearson, who became the Global CEO of DHL Express.
“For DHL Express, quality and growth are the pillars of our past and future success,” said Pearson. “Since his move to Italy as Managing Director, Alberto has proven that he is capable focusing on both.
“His efforts to push the Express Italy business on all fronts have contributed to Italy becoming one of our largest market and one in which we expect continuing high performance.
“We are looking forward to seeing Alberto use his in-depth expertise to take DHL Express to the next level of its growth Europe-wide in 2019 and beyond.”
Nobis has over 10 years of experience at DHL Express and in his new role, he is responsible for almost 50 countries in Europe with focus on the region’s performance across the four dimensions that define the strategy.
“It is both a great honor and an exciting challenge to be appointed CEO for DHL Express Europe. In this position, I can count on the decade of experience I’ve gained at DHL Express and on the support of our people and network to increase our performance for customers throughout Europe,” said Nobis.
The successor for Nobis for DHL Express Italy will be announced in the coming weeks.
