DB Schenker, the logistics arm of German state rail operator Deutsche Bahn, has appointed Vishal Sharma as the new chief executive officer for its Asia Pacific region.

With more than 30 years of experience in the logistics sector, Sharma has been the chief executive officer for DB Schenker’s Greater China cluster since 2021.

He joined DB Schenker in 2018 as the CEO of the Indian Subcontinent cluster.

Jochen Thewes, DB Schenker global chief executive officer, says: “Vishal’s experience, combined with his extensive industry knowledge, positions him well to lead our team in the Asia Pacific region.

“In his previous executive roles at DB Schenker, he has proven his forwarding expertise and his customer dedication. I am confident that his leadership will contribute to the continued success of DB Schenker.”

Before joining DB Schenker, Vishal has held various executive leadership positions in several forwarding companies in the US, Singapore, India and Denmark.

He holds an MBA from University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business and a Master of Management Studies from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai.

Vishal Sharma takes over responsibilities from Dr Niklas Wilmking who has been appointed DB Schenker’s board member for contract logistics and supply chain management.
