The new CEO of DHL Express, John Pearson, is expecting continued positive developments for the global express market and the company, thanks to booming cross-border eCommerce, digitalization and the company’s positioning in all industry verticals.
Pearson became a member of the board effective January 1, 2019. He was instrumental for DHL Express’ decade long success story and expects growth figures to continue in 2019 and beyond for the Express division of the Group.
Pearson took over from Ken Allen who became CEO of the newly established DHL eCommerce Solutions division.
DHL to Capitalize on Global Trade
DHL Express aims to capitalize on developments in global trade in the coming years with its
unparalleled network in 220 countries and territories.
Because of increasing eCommerce, markets in Europe, the US and Asia are registering continuous economic growth and represent a significant potential for cross-border express shipping in the consumer area.
In addition, these markets continue to form the foundation for B2B-driven logistics services for industry sectors such as automotive, life sciences and healthcare, banking, retail and technology.
“DHL Express has experienced a tremendous success story over the last ten years, where its annual top line growth has made substantial financial contributions for the Group. This development was very much driven by our dedication to quality, the uncompromising engagement of our 100,000 employees worldwide and the insane customer centric culture.”

With Pearson having knowledge and history in the North American market, it will be interesting to see if he can continue to expand DHL’s brand presence in the US among small business merchants.
