Track Record: Ken Allen
Ken Allen started in accountancy before joining DHL three decades ago. For ten years from 2009 he was CEO of DHL Express, responsible for turning around the company from a loss-making mega brand (losing -$3bn globally in 2008) into a world-class performer (profits of $2bn in 2018). He recently handed over the leadership reigns, and is now CEO of DHL’s eCommerce Solutions division. He’s a “back-to-the-floor” kind of guy, often spending time with his organisation’s driving workforce (more often wearing company uniform than a suit!) and has a habit of breaking into song at functions and meetings – earning himself the nickname ‘the Singing CEO’.
