DHL Express has appointed Alberto Nobis as its new CEO for Europe, paving the way for his return to the Global Management Board of DHL Express. Nobis was the Global CFO for DHL Express from 2009 to 2012 before relocating to his home country of Italy in 2013. As CEO DHL Express Italy, Alberto Nobis helped to drive the division’s growth in the Italian market. Effective January 1, 2019, he has taken over responsibility for 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,” says John Pearson, Global CEO DHL Express. “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, including several management positions as CFO and CEO for the time-definite shipping provider of the Deutsche Post DHL Group. 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: people at the core are motivated to provide great service quality, with a direct positive impact on customers’ loyalty and, finally, on DHL’s network profitability.
