Alberto Nobis becomes the new CEO at VTG GmbH

Alberto Nobis will take over as the new Chief Executive Officer of VTG GmbH on October 1, 2023. In this new role, he will oversee the management and business development of more than 50 locations in 20 European countries, providing services that span the entire rail-based logistics chain – from wagon leasing and rail logistics to traction supplied by VTG's own rail transport company Retrack, alongside newbuild and maintenance workshops.

Nobis combines decades of leadership experience with an impressive list of achievements in the logistics industry. He comes to VTG from the DHL Group, where he served the DHL Express division in increasingly complex roles, initially in finance and culminating in the position of global CFO (2009-2012). He later assumed general management positions at the national, regional and global levels. In his most recent position, from early 2019 until summer 2023, Nobis served as CEO Europe at DHL Express, managing a portfolio of over 50 countries and 45,000 people. On his watch, DHL Express became the European leader in terms of market share, margin, customer satisfaction and employee engagement. 

“Alberto Nobis embodies all the qualities we need to further expand VTG's leading position in Europe in the coming years,” says Dr. Alexander Granderath, Chairman of the Advisory Board of VTG GmbH. “He is a proven international leader who is passionate about client centricity, operational excellence and team engagement. He also has an outstanding track record of successfully transforming businesses. We will give him all the support he needs as he sets about driving forward the transformation of VTG with determination and sustainable success.” 

“Hardly any other European asset and logistics company has as much potential, combined with such a wealth of tradition and innovation, as VTG,” Alberto Nobis says. “I am very much looking forward to working together with my Executive Board colleagues Mark Stevenson and Sven Wellbrock. Together, we will continue to consistently unlock this potential in close cooperation with our employees, drawing on their experience and their rich diversity of ideas to make rail freight transport more attractive to the forwarding industry. By convincing our customers in Europe of the strength of rail as an energy-efficient and sustainable system, we are actively contributing to the transport revolution.”
