DHL Global Forwarding has appointed Michael Dhu as its new Country Manager for New Zealand.
An Australian with more than 26 years of experience in national, regional and global roles in the logistics industry, Michael spent the past five years serving as Vice President, Global Head of Sales Steering, at DHL's global head office in Germany.
During his time in Bonn, Mr Dhu masterminded a series of key changes across DHL's global sales structure – including CRM implementation, bid process redesign and performance metrics redesign. He also led the roll-out of the Certified International Forwarder (CIF) program launched in mid-2014, according to DHL.
Dhu joined the logistics industry in 1989 in Australia, building a portfolio of expertise across Asia Pacific including New Zealand, before joining Danzas AEI that became DHL Global Forwarding. Before relocating to Bonn, he was National Sales Manager for DHL Global Forwarding in Australia.
“I am delighted to lead the Global Forwarding business in New Zealand, an assignment which will bring me back to my home region where I first started my career in logistics,” he commented.
“With the depth of experience in doing business in South Pacific and managing projects in global strategy development, business transformation and implementation, I look forward to leading the team to deliver greater business value for our customers and winning in the marketplace with a capable and enthusiastic team.”
