Hendrik Venter (50) has been appointed as chief executive at DHL Supply Chain for Mainland Europe, Middle East and Africa, with effect from October 1.

Venter will succeed Oscar de Bok, who will take over the Board Department DHL Supply Chain as member of the Board of Management at Deutsche Post DHL Group in October.

“Customer centricity, a first-class service portfolio and happy employees in a motivating and innovative working environment are the key to our success as the world’s leading contract logistics provider,” said Venter of his appointment.

De Bok said: “Hendrik has consistently proven throughout his various areas of responsibility within the Group that he is able to lead his organisations to sustainable profitable growth. Under his leadership especially the Central and Eastern Europe region has performed very well.”

Venter looks back on more than ten years’ experience in management positions at DHL Supply Chain and also held numerous positions in contract logistics prior to that. In his future role as CEO for the Mainland Europe, Middle East and Africa region, he will now head the DHL Supply Chain business in 25 different country markets. The focus of his new role will include strengthening and expanding the region’s growth into the future, driving the standardisation process at DHL Supply Chain and consistently implementing the Business Department’s innovation agenda.

With this appointment, Venter will also become a member of DHL Supply Chain’s Global Management Board. Hendrik Venter, who has held various management positions at DHL Supply Chain since 2009, initially worked in South Africa as Director Healthcare, Technology & Automotive and, from 2013 onwards, headed DHL’s contract logistics business in Poland as Managing Director. In 2015, he was appointed CEO Central Europe until his area of responsibility was expanded to include the Eastern Europe region in 2018. Since then, Venter has been managing the DHL Supply Chain business in the Central and Eastern Europe cluster.
