Youngest MD for Maersk in Gulf, says it's time to hire female leaders
THE chief commercial officer of Globe Express Services, Poonam Datta, she says it's time for the logistics industry to recruit a "new generation of female executives" in a sector where women have been proportionally under-represented. 
Ms Datta was the youngest female to become the managing director for the Gulf region of the Maersk Group.
"When I had started working, I was constantly reminded of how unusual it was to see a female in the logistics industry. The ratio has definitely improved since then but there is still room for enhancement as it is largely male-centric at the leadership level. We are optimistic about seeing a change at the leadership level too in the near future."
"The industry must simply continue to be open-minded and offer key roles to competent and deserving candidates," she said in an interview with Arabian Supply Chain magazine. "By this effort alone, I am sure we will see increasing numbers of the fairer sex filling crucial roles within the industry," she said.
"I have mentored women who were keen to join this industry and now they have all become successful leaders holding top positions in their respective companies.
"Logistics is the future. It is an integral component of the economy and trade. Therefore holding a position within this sector will allow you to assist, enhance and improve the national and global economic well-being," she said.
