DHL Global Forwarding has appointed Thomas Tieber as CEO for ASEAN and South Asia. Prior to this, Tieber was overseeing DHL Global Forwarding in South Asia – he managed Thailand and established operations in Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. In this newly expanded role, Thomas will also oversee Cambodia, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, and other agent operations in ASEAN and South Asia. Based in Thailand, he will continue to report directly to Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific.
Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific, said: “ASEAN is an important region for DHL Global Forwarding as we have seen the pace and growth of Intra-ASEAN trade accelerating in the last few years. Intra-ASEAN trade makes up a significant portion of our business portfolio and we will continue to focus on these high-growth regions to build our expertise and strengthen our operations in Asia Pacific. With Thomas overseeing a greater cluster of our operations in Asia Pacific, I’m confident that his rich experience and good relationships with industry stakeholders will benefit our customers and drive greater success for our business in the region.”
Tiber has been with the DHL Group for 26 years and has held key management roles in sales and marketing and business development in Europe and Asia.
