Leadership changes at DHL

DHL has appointed a new CEO of DHL Global Forwarding Germany and Switzerland.

Markus Panhauser will assume dual responsibility for both country organisations in his new role, succeeding Tobias Schmidt. He joined the Group in 2020 after working at various global logistics companies.

“We are convinced that Markus Panhauser, with his expertise in the freight forwarding business, will contribute to further expanding DHL Global Forwarding’s market share in the two important markets of Germany and Switzerland and strengthen the organisation in both countries for the future,” said CEO DHL Global Forwarding, Tim Scharwath.

Schmidt, the company said, had successfully led both country organisations alongside his role as CEO of DHL Global Forwarding Europe since November 2021 and is now focusing purely on his role as CEO of DHL Global Forwarding Europe.

Meanwhile, taking over from Panhauser, Barbara Eleota, will assume the position of Head of Ocean Freight DHL Global Forwarding Europe. Joining DHL Group from DB Schenker, Eleota brings more than 25 years of experience in the logistics sector.
