In his long career, where he rose to the role of CEO Benelux and France for DHL Global Forwarding and President of FIATA, Delen promoted the value of freight forwarding, established a new era of collaboration between IATA and FIATA, and inspired young people to launch a career in logistics.
Commenting on his induction into the TIACA Hall of Fame, Delen says, “I am truly humbled to be acknowledged by the industry for my work throughout the years and grateful that the induction was performed in the SkyHall, a location I have walked through so many times throughout my career. I thank all of those that have supported me. And remember my motto that I have abided by “Nobody is perfect on his own, but a team can be.”
