DHL Supply Chain has announced the appointment of Brindha Pillay as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), who will now succeed Craig Roberts.
The contract logistics company said Roberts had been an invaluable member of the DHL Group for almost three decades and he will relocate to undertake a DHL role overseeing Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Pillay, who has been a strong contributor to the organisation for more than 15 years, started her DHL career as National Finance Manager.

Prior to this role, Pillay was the Senior Vice President, Global Head of Accounting and Process Digitalisation Finance at DHL.
“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,” she said in a statement.
“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.”
Pillay has, during her time at DHL, championed several strategic initiatives, including the creation and implementation of the first key milestones of the overall strategy for the Accounting Function, globally.
“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,” said Roberts.
“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. I’ve been working very closely with Brindha to ensure a smooth and successful transition.”
Roberts has been a valued member of the DHL group for nearly 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.
