Global role for Inglis at DHL Supply Chain

Graham Inglis has moved from his role as CEO Europe at DHL Supply Chain to become divisional chief development officer, responsible for the growth agenda including sales and marketing and the global sector and product teams.

He will also be responsible for the global Life Sciences & Healthcare business in DHL Supply Chain and the global Service Parts Logistics business. He will continue to be based in the UK.

Paul Graham has become CEO for Mainland Europe, Middle East and Africa and also divisional chief operating officer. He was previously CEO, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. He will move from Singapore to Bonn, Germany.

Perry Watts retains his role as CEO UK & Ireland, but will now report to the DHL Supply Chain divisional board.

The moves follow the announcement in March that John Gilbert would take over as board member for DHL Supply Chain at Deutsche Post DHL from Bruce Edwards who is retiring from the business.

Inglis said: “Our Strategy 2020: Focus.Connect.Grow will power the Group’s next stage of growth and open up new opportunities in today’s fast-changing environment. Our aspiration is to be the leading force in the logistics industry by 2020 and the company that defines logistics.

“I am very excited to be part of that and to be driving the challenging growth agenda as we head towards 2020.”

There have been moves elsewhere in DHL Supply Chain. Scott Sureddin has been named chief executive officer of North America; Jose Nava has been appointed chief executive officer of DHL Supply Chain, Latin America; and Oscar de Bok has become CEO for DHL Supply Chain’s Asia-Pacific Region.
