DHL Global Forwarding has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer for Sub Saharan Africa. Daniella de Pauw will be based in Johannesburg and will be responsible for driving the business’s activities in the emerging markets on the continent.

De Paul was previously DHL Global Forwarding’s MD for South Africa, as well as Regional Director for Southern Africa and Indian Ocean. She took up the CEO post in August.
