UK-based delivery provider UK Mail has announced the appointment of Peter Fuller (above) as CEO. Fuller, the former chief operating officer for parcels, will now lead the £500m (US$586m) business acquired by Deutsche Post DHL Group in December 2016.
Effective since August 1, 2017, Fuller has taken over from Peter Kane, the company’s founder and former chairman, who has been in the role of interim CEO since the acquisition. Fuller will lead UK Mail through the remaining integration process into the European DHL Parcel network and expected business growth phases.
Fuller said, “Following the acquisition by Deutsche Post DHL the business is in a strong position. The integration and co-branding activity is progressing to plan and we have put in place ambitious growth plans for our import and export channels which are being supported by key areas of investment including an extension to our central hub in Ryton, Northeast England, which will increase parcel processing capacity.”
Achim Dünnwald, CEO, DHL Parcel Europe, said, “Peter Fuller has been instrumental in building UK Mail into one of the country’s largest parcel and mail service providers. He played a key role ensuring a smooth acquisition of UK Mail by our group and has led on business integration activities as well as driving growth in the competitive UK marketplace.
“I fully believe that his expertise will contribute toward our goal of delivering additional value for our customers in the UK and in Europe by establishing a seamless, integrated delivery service for their cross-border shipments to and from the UK.”
Fuller joined UK Mail as group operations director in 2016. Prior to joining UK Mail, Fuller worked for Parcelforce Worldwide for 19 years, where he was operations director.
