DHL board member and CEO of the Global Forwarding, Freight, division Roger Crook has resigned his position, citing personal reasons.
Crook, 58, has held a number of leading positions within the firm since 1988. Group CEO Frank Appel will take on Crook’s board responsibilities in the interim until a full time appointment can be made, with Renato Chiavi named interim Global Forwaring CEO. Previously, Chiavi ran the ocean and air freight division for former DHL Danzas between 1995 and 2006.
The Supervisory Board thanked Crook for his longstanding service and acknowledged his commitment in leading the division in a continuously challenging business environment.
