DHL Supply Chain appoints automotive lead for North America15 February 2017 | Marcus Williams
Lutwen first joined DHL Supply Chain in North America in 2003 as finance director for the company’s chemical, energy and industrial business. Since then, he has held a number of senior roles in operations and finance within the automotive and consumer sectors.
DHL Supply Chain’s automotive business in North America was formerly grouped with engineering and manufacturing under the watch of Mark Kunar. The company would not confirm why it now appeared to have made automotive a separate organisational unit under Lutwen’s command, stating only that “automotive remains a sector for DHL Supply Chain.”
The company provides warehouse operations, in-plant logistics and transport management to the automotive industry in the region.
Speaking about Lutwen’s appointment, Scott Sureddin, CEO of DHL Supply Chain North America, said: “Lutwen plays an integral role in the continued growth and success of DHL Supply Chain’s logistics solutions for the automotive industry, so we are pleased by this promotion. With Lutwen’s extensive expertise in the logistics and automotive industries, we can ensure our automotive customers receive the most innovative solutions that meet all of their supply chain needs.”
