Peter Fuller has been appointed chief executive of UK Mail, taking over from Peter Kane.
Fuller was previously the company’s chief operating officer for parcels, and before that worked for Parcelforce Worldwide for 19 years.
He will lead UK Mail through the final parts of the integration process into the European DHL Parcel network.
“Following the acquisition by Deutsche Post DHL the business is in a strong position,” said Fuller. “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 which will increase parcel processing capacity.”
Achim Dünnwald chief executive of 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 towards 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.”
