DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of DHL Group, is making a change to its global leadership team. Thomas Mack, EVP of air freight, will move into a new senior advisor role and continue to report directly to Tim Scharwath, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding. Following this, after a transition period, in October 2024, Thomas Mack will be retiring and leaving the company.

Mack has worked in the air freight industry for over four decades. At DHL Global Forwarding, he joined five years ago as head of global air freight—he also worked closely with sister division DHL Express.

The industry veteran will be succeeded as EVP by Max Sauberschwarz, who currently holds the role of SVP Global StarBroker, DHL Global Forwarding’s air charter organization. Sauberschwarz will assume the new role as of Oct. 1, reporting directly to Scharwath. In addition to this role, he will also become a member of the global forwarding management board.

"We are delighted to have found a worthy successor to Thomas Mack in Max Sauberschwarz. In his previous role, he demonstrated not only his deep industry knowledge, but also his leadership skills and we look forward to driving the business forward together in the years ahead,” says Scharwath.
