Effective the beginning of February, Dr Antje Huber has been in post as CEO of Deutsche Post DHL owned digital freight platform Saloodo! She replaced Thomas Grunau who had been in post since 2018.
Grunau was also SVP Global Business Strategy & Digitalisation and member of the divisional Board at DHL Global Forwarding. He has stood aside from his role at Saloodo! so Huber can apply her specialist skills in the role.
Huber is expected to develop the platform into an international player. “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to win Antje Huber as CEO for Saloodo! and secure her proven expertise in international expansion strategies and digital technology projects. Through her work on the Management Board she is already up to speed on the company and its processes. This will ensure a smooth transition as she focuses efforts to establish Saloodo!’s presence around the world,” says CEO DHL Freight Uwe Brinks, who is responsible for Saloodo! within Deutsche Post DHL Group.
She has been a member of the Saloodo! management board since 2019 and has been working at Deutsche Post DHL since she began her career in 2003. Huber has been SVP SVP Strategy, Marketing & Chief of Staff at DHL Freight since 2017 and will remain in that role while CEO of Saloodo!
“I would like to express my thanks for the confidence placed in me with this new appointment and look forward to working together with Deutsche Post DHL Group, especially DHL Freight, the Management Board – and most of all with the great team at Saloodo!, says Dr. Huber. “Over the past three years, I have been able to observe the incredible commitment and enthusiasm our colleagues bring to their work. Together, we will build on what has already been achieved and consolidate Saloodo!’s presence around the world.”
