McHugh leaves DHL Asia Pacific in regional shake-up
DHL said Monday it is merging its Asia Pacific and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa regions into one region.
As a result, Dan McHugh, chief executive officer of DHL Express Asia Pacific, has left the company.
'The move is part of a previously announced reorganization within DHL Express,' the company said.
John Pearson, CEO of the Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) region, has taken over as executive vice president, Asia Pacific/EEMEA and chair of the customer service executive committee of the DHL Global Express board.
Pearson joined DHL in the Middle East in 1986 and in 2008 was appointed as CEO of EEMEA. McHugh joined DHL in the Asia Pacific in 2005 as senior vice president of commercial and has been CEO of the region since 2007.
'He has successfully led the region to record EBIT performance in 2007 and 2008,' DHL said. 'Over the past two years DHL has maintained the No. 1 market share position and achieved a record year-on-year EBIT growth.'
