Yodel chief operating officer Carl Moore said: “The last two years have seen the substantial growth of our business across the board and the pandemic has undoubtedly accelerated the trend towards online shopping, which has proven that it’s here to stay.
“While we continue to invest heavily in new technology and innovation to handle increased demand, these appointments also reinforce our commitment to investing in our people and bringing in those that will help us take our business to the next level.”
