Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has made two new appointments to its sustainability division as part of its focus on greening its operations.

Şükran Gencay has been appointed as head of sustainability – social & governance, while Daniel Hülemeyer will take the role of head of sustainability – environment.

Gencay will lead the ongoing development and global implementation of Hellmann’s social sustainability initiatives.

“In this role, she will ensure that the company maintains its commitment to social responsibility,” the logistics firm said.

“With her extensive experience in the logistics industry and through various leadership positions at Hellmann since 2020, Şükran Gencay is well equipped to take charge of the company’s social and governance goals and deepen its sustainability strategies.”

Previously, Gencay occupied the role of global head of leadership and culture where she established a new corporate culture, a task she will continue in her new position.

Meanwhile, Hülemeyer will continue Hellmann’s efforts to decarbonise and integrate ecological practices across all product areas and its real estate infrastructure.

“His primary focus will be carbon footprint reduction, promotion of renewable energies, and fostering a culture of environmentally friendly innovations in collaboration with the newly established Hellmann Innovation Hub,” the company explained.

Hülemeyer brings over 12 years of experience in sustainability topics at Hellmann and has previously led the global quality, health, safety, and environmental (QHSE) management team.

Gencay and Hülemeyer join Stefan Borggreve – chief digital officer – who looks after sustainability at the company at board level.
