Hendrik Venter will take over as the new CEO DHL Supply Chain for Mainland Europe, Middle East and Africa on 1 October, 2019.

Venter will succeed Oscar de Bok, who will take over the Board Department DHL Supply Chain as member of the Board of Management at Deutsche Post DHL Group in October.

“I am looking forward to this new challenge, and I am convinced that we will continue to forge DHL Supply Chain’s successful path in the region. Together with this outstanding team, we at DHL Supply Chain will continue to optimally support our customers with outstanding logistic services,” said Venter.

“Customer centricity, a first-class service portfolio and happy employees in a motivating and innovative working environment are the key to our success as the world’s leading contract logistics provider,” he added.

“Hendrik has consistently proven throughout his various areas of responsibility within the Group that he is able to lead his organizations to sustainable profitable growth.

“Under his leadership especially the Central and Eastern Europe region has performed very well. Hendrik has positioned the Central and Eastern Europe cluster very strongly, particularly in the automotive mobility and e-commerce sectors,” said de Bok.

Venter looks back on more than 10 years experience in management positions at DHL Supply Chain and also held numerous positions in contract logistics prior to that.

In his future role as CEO for the Mainland Europe, Middle East and Africa region, he will now head the DHL Supply Chain business in 25 different country markets.

He is charged with strengthening and expanding the region’s growth into the future, driving the standardisation process at DHL Supply Chain and consistently implementing the Business Department’s innovation agenda.
