Amadou Diallo, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Middle East and Africa, said, "Africa and Middle East are important regions for our network and we are optimistic of its growth potential. Middle East for example is projected to grow by 3.7%[1] this year and a similar upward trend[2] is predicted for the African region. Therefore, putting in place the right leaders to capitalize on this growth trajectory is crucial, as they have full understanding of the markets to deliver best business results for our customers. We are excited to further collaborate with our customers to harness more positive business prospects and drive growth for the region."

Daniella De Pauw, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Sub-Saharan Africa, said, "I am positive that these key appointments will drive continued growth for the company in the region. Both Alassane and Theophile are DHL veterans who have been with us for more than a decade, and have proven their expertise in various roles within the organization. The wealth of experience they have gained throughout the years will enable them to steer the business and we value them very much."

Alassane Mare appointed as Country Manager to oversee operations in Cameroon

Alassane has been with DHL for about 20 years, of which he spent almost 10 years with DHL International Senegal in various functions including operations performance, quality and security, as well as project management for key initiatives - implementation of Global Standard Operating Procedure and Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) certifications. His deep experience within DHL Global Forwarding division in the last eight years puts him in good stead to fully understand the business and industry, from his earlier roles as Head of Sales, Air Freight Manager, and Head of Operations, Head of Ocean Freight Products.

Alassane Mare, Country Manager for Cameroon, DHL Global Forwarding, said, "Over the years, I am honored to be given various opportunities and was able to deliver results, thanks to the excellent teams I work with. This new role is a continued positive momentum for me, and I am excited to raise the bar further, for the business in the region. This market still presents tremendous potential and I look forward to continue delivering the highest standards of excellence to our customers, with the support of a talented and committed team."

In 2008, he took on the role of operations manager for DHL Global Forwarding Gabon where he leveraged his expertise to drive growth for the market.
