However, without doubt, it’s a story best seen through the eyes of the mastermind behind that seemingly impossible transformation – the remarkable Ken Allen. The former CEO of DHL Express is a no-nonsense Yorkshireman who rose from humble beginnings to reach the pinnacle of his industry, and his career, as CEO of DHL – the world’s most international company.
