Warren Cobb
Director of Construction, Corporate Real Estate, UK & Ireland
DHL

Warren Cobb has worked in the various guises of DHL since 1996, and is now Director of Construction, UK & Ireland. He trained as a quantity surveyor, before branching into construction management, fitting out a building for the McGregor Cory (part of the Ocean Group) and then subsequently joining the logistics industry. Warren has been responsible for delivering various new builds and fit outs in European countries, including Spain, France, Portugal, Austria, Turkey, etc, Sweden being his favourite (I can’t think why!). His experience is such that the likes of large organisations employ him to carry out due diligence services on their own design teams. He now heads up a team of qualified surveyors, whose collective experience totals 100 years within the logistics industry. He has recently completed a £250m project to extend DHL’s gateway hub at East Midlands Airport, which now has the capacity to handle 65,000 parcels / packages per hour. His hobbies, when not with his two daughters, include cycling, motorcycling, gadgets and flying. Warren first flew solo in 1983 with the cadets, gained his pilot's license, instrument rating, night rating, etc, and now enjoys the escapism of flying above all the rushing around below him.
