Jean-Claude Delen

2023 Hall of Fame Recipient

Jean-Claude joined Air Express International (AEI) in 1965 and following several takeovers he scaled the heights with the DHL leadership.  A proud advocate for the forwarding community led Jean-Claude to head CLECAT, the EU-level representative body of freight forwarders. 

He also played a pivotal role within FIATA, with a key position within the FIATA Air Freight Institute and IATA/FIATA Consultative Council.  He also joined the FIATA leadership where he acted as Treasurer and ultimately as President.

Jean-Claude is a gentleman of this industry with a passion for life, a lover of fast cars and an amazing purveyor of great stories of the fledging logistics industry where he personally established high value supply chains within Africa. 

Still active today, lending his wealth of knowledge and experience to those fortunate to receive his counsel. 

There are many developing industry executives and younger starting employees who credit Jean-Claude with giving them time when they needed it, a quiet word of support, an ear to listen to their concerns or ideas.
