As part of its reorganisation of domestic and international logistics management for later this year, TNT Express has announced a new top leadership team, which includes a number of former DHL executives.
CEO Tex Gunning and CFO Bernard Bot will be joined by Marco van Kalleveen, who takes up the role of managing director domestics and chief transformation officer. Van Kalleveen is a strategy and turnaround specialist who has worked previously at McKinsey and Bain Capital.
Ian Clough moves over from DHL, where he was most recently CEO of North America for the company, and has been named managing director for International Europe. His counterpart in AMEA will be Michael Drake, who will be managing director International Asia Middle East and Africa. Drake has worked for 20 years with TNT.
Martin Södergård, another former DHL executive, will join as managing director Network Operations. He was previously DHL's group director of global networks.
Chris Goossens will become managing director of customer experience, moving on from his role as managing director of Europe and other Americas. Finally, Steven Scheers, who was most recently TNT's global HR director, will become chief people officer.
The new reporting lines at the company will not come into effect until the second half of this year.
"We have a lot of work ahead but together with this experienced top team and each and every one of our dedicated employees around the world, I am sure we will succeed,” said Gunning.
