December 14 - DSV has appointed two new divisional chief commercial officers (CCOs), in addition those already appointed for Solutions and Sub Saharan Africa, giving all DSV divisions and Sub Saharan Africa their own cco.
The four divisional ccos are Michael D. Hansen - DSV Air & Sea Holding; Wilbert Tholhuijsen - DSV Road Holding; Meinderdjan Botman - DSV Solutions Holding and Jenny Purchase - DSV, Sub Saharan Africa.
The divisional ccos report directly to their divisional CEO - and are members of the DSV global commercial organisation's (GCO) senior management team lead by global coco René Falch Olesen.
Jens Bjørn Andersen, ceo, comments: "We have appointed the new divisional ccos to strengthen the ties between our global commercial organisation and the business. We want to continuously improve our performance in serving new and existing customers across DSV - and we hope this will be a significant step in that direction".
The divisional ccos will work across their respective global organisations. To ensure that cross-divisional activities are fully considered, all country sales directors will have a dotted line to a divisional cco.
"We want to ensure structure and consistency in our approach to our global markets and customers. The divisional ccos will have a central position to influence the commercial direction and cooperation between both our countries and divisions. We are convinced that this strategic move will have that exact effect," says global coco René Falch Olesen.
