SINGAPORE, May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ —

South East Asia chief Yasmin Aladad Khan adds management of South Asia region in portfolio expansion
Appointment underscores DHL commitment to increasing women in leadership roles
DHL Express, the world’s leading cross-border express services provider, has united the management of two of its fastest growing regions with the appointment of Yasmin Aladad Khan as Senior Vice President for DHL Express South East Asia and South Asia. In her newly expanded role, Yasmin will take charge of the South Asia region, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal, and will retain responsibility for South East Asia excluding Singapore. This latest appointment by DHL Express is in line with Deutsche Post DHL’s global commitment to increasing the share of women in executive leadership positions.

Jerry Hsu, CEO, DHL Express Asia Pacific said: “Yasmin first joined DHL Express in 2001 as Country Manager for Malaysia and since then she has been instrumental in strengthening our market-leading position in the South East Asia region. Her wealth of experience benefits our clients and our operations as we continue to build our business in South Asia expanding services that are increasingly sought after by domestic and international clients in this region.”

Yasmin, who was promoted to her first regional role as SVP South East Asia in 2007, will continue to report to Mr. Hsu and will remain as a member of the DHL Express Asia Pacific Management Board. Previously, the country management of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal all reported to Malcolm Monteiro, who has been appointed the new CEO of DHL Global Mail Asia Pacific.

Yasmin said: “It is very exciting to be able to bring my experience in South East Asia to bear on the newly created region. As trade between South Asia and Southeast Asia continues to grow[1], there are several intra-regional opportunities that DHL can take advantage of. One such opportunity is in the financial services sector in Bangladesh, where we recently inked agreements with several banks. As I look to the other markets of Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal, I see even more opportunities and am keen to grow the business there.”

Mr. Hsu added: “We are very proud of Yasmin as she continues her growth with DHL. According to an article I read recently, less than a fifth of management positions within the logistics industry are currently held by women[2]. While this figure might not be true for DHL in the Asia Pacific, where we have a number of women leading our country offices, Yasmin’s leadership role in our organization is one that is truly inspirational to our female employees.”
