TNT UK has appointed ex-City Link finance director Robert Peto to its board. He replaces John Downing, the company’s financial director.

Peto had been with City Link since 2011 until its demise last year.

Before that he was financial director at Parcelforce and has also served in a financial role at DPD and Interlink parent GeoPost.

Peto was appointed to the TNT UK board earlier this month, following the appointment of Marianne Culver as its new MD.

Culver, who joined TNT from electronics distributor Premier Farnell, has more than 25 years in business transformation according to TNT. She replaced former MD Alistair Cochrane.

She said she was delighted to be joining the company "at such a pivotal time".
