DHL Express has named Nour Suliman, as their new CEO for Middle East and North Africa, in a management restructure of the fast growing region.

Nour, who joined DHL Express more than 30 years ago, is a key area expert. Formerly country manager of Saudi Arabia since 2007, Nour has also managed the business in Bahrain and worked in a total of four countries in the region. Nour takes over from Garry Kemp, CEO Middle East, North Africa & Turkey (MENAT), who has been named senior vice-president, Compliance and Postal Relations.

Ken Allen, global CEO of DHL Express, said: “To optimise DHL’s organic growth potential, we are expanding our global capabilities and improving customer service through significant investments in infrastructure, in our employees and our brand. The appointment of Nour Suliman as CEO of Middle East and North Africa will play a critical role in managing and strengthening our partner relationships.”

“These are very exciting times for DHL Express in the Middle East and North Africa and for our industry,” he added.

The appointment follows a busy month for the firm, with the recent announcement that additional flights from the U.S. to the Middle East would commence to help meet growing demand for time definite Express services.
