Delivering Finance Excellence > DHL Supply Chain announce Brindha Pillay as A/NZ CFO
DHL Supply Chain, the global market leader in contract logistics solutions, today announced the appointment of Brindha Pillay as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). Brindha will succeed Craig Roberts, an invaluable member of the DHL Group for nearly three decades, who will be relocating to a DHL role overseeing Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Brindha has been a strong contributor to the organisation for more than 15 years, having started her DHL career as Australia’s finance manager. Prior to this role, she was the Senior Vice President, Global Head of Accounting and Process Digitalisation Finance at DHL. During her time in DHL, Brindha championed a number of strategic initiatives, including the creation and implementation of the first key milestones of the overall strategy for the Accounting Function, globally.
“I am excited to take on the role of CFO for DHL Supply Chain in ANZ, and continue to champion excellence in the office of finance across the business,” said Pillay. “Craig has built a strong finance organisation, and I’m committed to driving value for the organisation, focusing on strong financial performance, process innovation, and transformative growth.”
“It gives me great pleasure to pass the torch to Brindha, whose exceptional skills and dedication will undoubtedly drive continued success for DHL Supply Chain in ANZ. I couldn’t think of a better person to succeed me and have full confidence in her ability to continue driving strategic value for the business,” added Roberts. “I’ve been working very closely with Brindha to ensure a smooth and successful transition.”
Craig has been a valued member of the DHL group for almost 30 years, first joining in 1995 as a Financial Accountant in South Africa. He held various CFO positions in APAC and EMEA before relocating to Australia in 2017 to lead the financial operations across ANZ. Throughout his time in Australia, Craig was instrumental in the strategic acquisition of the Cameron Group, the development of several strategic projects and made a significant contribution to the growth of the business.
Kwok-wai Lee, CFO, Asia Pacific, DHL Supply Chain, said, “I have every confidence in Brindha’s abilities to step into the CFO role with her strong business acumen, developed in key finance roles both in Australia and internationally. I have worked closely with Brindha and Craig over the years and have seen first-hand their excellent contributions to the DHL Supply Chain business.”
