Underwood has been with Whistl for 16 years, rising from senior account manager to sales director for the north during that time. Laura Sanjurgo will replace Underwood as director of sales north.

Alistair Cochrane, chief executive Whistl, said: “With the sustained growth in online shopping, we need to capitalise upon these growth opportunities with a dedicated approach to maximise the parcel growth potential and the appointment of Andy as managing director to drive this initiative will help achieve this.”
