“After careful consideration, I have decided not to remain for another full term in office,” said Frank Appel when the announcement was published.

According to German media, Appel is aiming for the chairmanship of the supervisory board at Deutsche Telekom, a role he could start in the spring of next year.

Appen joined Deutsche Post AG in 2000 as a managing director responsible for corporate development and he has been the CEO of the company since 2008.

Under Appel’s leadership, the company has posted one record after the next. Deutsche Post DHL Group has much to thank him for,” said Dr. Nikolaus von Bomhard, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Post AG.

Meyer joined the company in 2013 and has held a wide variety of positions including Head of Corporate Development, Chief Operations Officer at DHL Global Forwarding, and Head of Operations and IT at Post & Parcel Germany.
