Oh dear. My praise for DHL’s appointment of women to senior positions is rather diminished by the following comment in their interim results for the six months ended 30th June 2014:
On 2 July 2014, Angela Titzrath, Board Member and Labour Director of Deutsche Post DHL, resigned from the Board of Management. Pending the appointment of a new Board Member for Human Resources, Dr Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL, will take on the corresponding responsibilities in a dual role.
I must have missed the original announcement, but strike one from the women’s total.
