Hellmann appoints CCO

Global full-service logistics provider, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, has named Patrick Oestreich as its new Chief Commercial Officer (CCO).

He succeeds Jens Möller, who took over the position on an interim basis in August 2020.

As CCO and member of the Executive Board, Oestreich will be responsible for the global sales leadership team, which manages the worldwide sales activities of all product areas, effective 1 April 2021.

Oestreich looks back on 20 years of international sales experience in the logistics industry. Following assignments at Deutsche Post/DHL/Danzas and UTi Germany, he held various management positions in the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region at Schenker AG from 2007 to 2018, most recently serving as Senior Vice President Road Brokerage and Land Transport in Europe. For the last two and a half years, Oestreich has been responsible for Strategic Sales and Account Management in Europe as Senior Vice President at XPO Logistics.

“In recent years, our focus has been on further developing the size and quality of our global sales organisation in terms of quality and quantity, thus creating an important prerequisite for profitable sustainable growth across all product segments and markets,” said Hellmann Worldwide Logistics CEO, Reiner Heiken.

“The optimised sales structure has successfully passed the stress test of a very challenging year 2020, and now we want to continue driving our growth agenda forward on this solid basis together with Patrick Oestreich and the international team.

“In particular, we will expand digital sales to provide solutions to the changes in the marketplace and thus our customers’ requirements for an innovative logistics service provider.”

Last month, Jörg Herwig joined Hellmann as COO.
