Current Americas CEO Mike Parra is set to start a new role as the CEO for DHL Express Europe. He will report to John Pearson, global CEO for DHL Express, and will be member of the DHL Express Global Management Board.
“These appointments recognize the strong leadership and commitment to service excellence and to our customers’ success of both Mike Parra and Andrew Williams. Mike has achieved many accomplishments in the Americas, including consistently strong revenue and profit growth, expansion of our leading international time definite network and an intense focus on employee engagement and well-being, and I’m excited to have him lead the organization in Europe,” said Pearson.
Parra has been the Americas CEO since 2016. He has led the DHL Express division to double in size from a revenue perspective, adding more than 12,000 jobs and expanding its operational footprint in the region, most recently with new regional Hubs in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, and historic new direct in-network flights to Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
Having started his logistics career at DHL Express in 1997 as a service center manager in Miami, he has served several roles within the organization, including regional services director, VP of operations for the U.S., SVP of network operations for the Americas, and CEO for DHL Express U.S. He also oversees global sponsorships for the division and will continue to do so in his new role.
As the newly appointed regional CEO for Europe, Parra will manage the operations of the DHL Express business across more than 60 countries and territories. In this capacity, he will lead a team of over 46,000 employees dedicated to serving a customer base exceeding 1.3 million. Parra will be based in Madrid, Spain.
