Steve Huang, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding China, has been recognised as CEO of the Year in the Asia Pacific region at last week’s International Alternative Investment Review (IAIR) Leadership Awards.
Huang was lauded for his outstanding performance in the areas of leadership, inspiration, innovation and social responsibility.
A veteran in the logistics industry, he is responsible for DHL Global Forwarding's overall business performance and strategy, including the management of more than 4,000 employees in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.
“Steve's efforts to strengthen and encourage strategic economic trade partnerships between China and Europe were instrumental to DHL's expansion of the new Silk Road over the past years, including the most recent announcement of the DHL China-Turkey multimodal rail corridor,” the company said in a media statement.
Huang commented, “I am honored and privileged to receive [the] CEO of the Year award. This accolade also goes out to fellow DHL team members and is a tribute to their efforts to go above and beyond in their daily work, without whom our accomplishment would have been impossible.”
