DHL Supply Chain, the global market leader for contract logistics solutions, has named Jerome Gillet as CEO of the new Singapore cluster which includes Singapore , Malaysia , and the Philippines . In this role, Jerome will continue to report to Terry Ryan, CEO, DHL Supply Chain Asia Pacific, while remaining as a member of the regional board.
The appointment will bring synergy for the three markets and drive new growth for the region. The DHL Supply Chain businesses locally continue to be led by the respective country heads – Jason Goh, managing director, DHL Supply Chain Singapore; Mike Davies, managing director, DHL Supply Chain Malaysia; and Suzie Mitchell, managing director, DHL Supply Chain Philippines — who now report to Jerome.
“We see tremendous opportunity in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines to grow our business with even more focus on greater service quality in the markets.

Jerome’s career in logistics spans over 20 years (the last 17 years in Asia Pacific ) and includes roles in general management, operations and business development. His last appointment as chief customer officer (CCO) of DHL Supply Chain Asia Pacific saw him turn Asia Pacific into the fastest-growing region worldwide within DHL Supply Chain. The tremendous growth was driven by his business development efforts in key sectors such as consumer & retail, technology and life sciences. Prior to his role as the CCO, Jerome was the vice president of consumer sector for Asia Pacific , and increased annual new business gains by over 200 percent between 2008 and 2014.
