“Kenneth has been known to me for 3 years, during which time I have come to respect him more and more. His quiet sensitivity belies an acute intellect, and commercial toughness which could be seen as “ice-cold” Skandinavian. However this would be an understatement as his warmth and sense of humour combine with his strategic grasp of business to produce a leader who could grace many a national board. Whether Kenneth confines his interests to the corporate world or “does his own thing” he will remain an individual who is first and foremost a human being. A superb accolade in this world of mad-house, self-interested consumerism”
Stuart Irwin, Owner, Quandoc Limited

His solid management skills combined with a hard won experience of strategic change projects have made him a highly regarded senior manager. In 2001 Kenneth became CIO creating a totally re-designed IT-solution for DHL in the Nordics. Using a bold mix of classic ingredients, business focus and new technology Kenneth Verlage’s IT-department came out as a low cost and high quality benchmark. In early 2009 Kenneth stepped up to his latest role – CIO for DHL Express in the Nordics where he now spearheads the change of IT from Classical IT into one of the company’s most important business enablers”
