David is surrounded and supported by diversified and highly competent “LifeConExers” who are dedicated to connect “People” with “Life” in day to day tasks and every single shipment at a time. Prior to his appointment as CEO in 2007, he had served as a founding member and Sr. VP Business Development & Implementation of this supplier-neutral start-up invested by DHL Global Forwarding and Lufthansa Cargo in 2005. Besides the remarkable financial and innovative achievements in the short company history, LifeConEx has become a globally recognized “premium” brand in the life sciences industry providing end to end temperature management (“cold chain”) solutions for highly sensitive medicinal products.
In 2011, with his top senior management team and board members, David successfully led DHL’s acquisition of the rest of the Lufthansa Cargo’s shares, which made LifeConEx a 100 percent DHL subsidiary. While still operating under LifeConEx brand, with DHL’s global presence and leverage, David and his team are accelerating and broadening LifeConEx’s development across the organization for all transport modes and even other strategic industries besides life sciences & healthcare while maintaining its neutrality.
David has been with the industry over 18 years holding multiple increasingly responsible positions in global contract acquisition, implementation, sales, finances, IT, and strategy, always integrating carrier, forwarder, and shipper perspectives. He is an active contributor of many articles published in relevant trade and technical magazines and a frequent speaker at various logistics and life sciences conferences worldwide, advocating for reduction of risk, elevated ROI, and ultimate patient safety.
