Rosen to retire as DP DHL chief financial officer

Deutsche Post DHL Group has announced that chief financial officer Lawrence Rosen, often known as Larry, has resigned from his position and will be replaced by Melanie Kreis.
Rosen, who is retiring, spent seven years in the position and over thirteen years as chief financial officer at DAX-listed companies.
“Larry Rosen very successfully implemented a long-term capital markets strategy and established truly world class finance processes and practices,” said Wulf von Schimmelmann, chairman of the supervisory board.
Since 2014, Melanie Kreis has been Member of the board for human resources and will retain this responsibility on an interim basis.  
Kreis started her career with McKinsey & Company in 1997, before moving to Apax Partners Private Equity. She joined Deutsche Post DHL in 2004, to focus on international meger and acquisition projects.
Following the Group’s acquisition of Exel in 2005, she moved to Bracknell, UK, to lead the overall Logistics integration effort.
Kreis was instrumental in planning and executing the sale of Postbank to Deutsche Bank. Prior to joining the Board, Melanie was chief financial officer of DHL Express.
