DHL Express appoints Reckling as new CEO for Germany

DHL Express has appointed Markus Reckling as the new chief executive officer (CEO) for Germany, and he took the helm from January.

He has taken responsibility for further expanding the express division’s business in Germany and will continue to drive the focus on customer service, quality and employee engagement.

Reckling takes over from Wolfgang Albeck, who will retire after a 20 year-career within the Deutsche Post DHL Group. In this role, Reckling will report to John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express Europe.

Pearson says: “Markus Reckling has delivered tangible impact and demonstrated passion, versatility and a commitment to excellence across all his roles over many years within the Deutsche Post DHL Group.

“He oversaw a period of sustained growth and strengthened market leadership in Turkey, in which DHL Express received external recognition as both an employer and provider of choice. His experience, business acumen and customer focus will be a great asset to our time definite business in Germany.”

Markus Reckling has over 15 years of senior management experience within the Deutsche Post DHL Group. From 2008, he served as executive vice president for corporate Development.

Then as CEO of DHL Express in Turkey, he successfully steered the country organization on a growth path between 2012 and 2016, with a particular focus on targeted investments to drive superior service quality and support for small and medium exporters.
