Kawal Preet is to be President, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region at FedEx Express.
In her previous role Preet was Senior VP of Operations, North and South Pacific Regions. She is to start in post on June 1.
In the new role she is to lead the overall planning and implementation of corporate strategies and operations. She will manage almost 40,000 team members in 103 markets and territories in the AMEA region – nearly half of the destinations that FedEx works into.
“I am thrilled that Kawal is taking over the reins as the President of AMEA region, including Asia Pacific,” said Don Colleran, President and CEO of FedEx Express. “Kawal is an industry veteran and brings a wealth of experience working at FedEx. She has proven to be a strong leader repeatedly over the years and has helped take Asia Pacific operations to new heights. I look forward to seeing our AMEA business grow under her leadership, and thank outgoing APAC Regional President Karen Reddington for her outstanding service as she takes over the European region.”
Preet started at FedEx as an associate engineer in Singapore in 1997 and has risen through the ranks. “I am humbled and honoured to be leading this talented and experienced leadership team and a new region that is bursting with opportunities for global trade and businesses. Our focus remains the same, which is to deliver the Purple Promise of an outstanding experience to our customers and communities as one region, while harnessing the power of our FedEx strong team who demonstrate the Purple Passion every day,” said Preet, Regional President, FedEx Express, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa.
