UK Mail, which was bought by Deutsche Post DHL Group in December 2016, has announced the appointment of Peter Fuller as chief executive officer. Fuller was previously chief operating officer for parcels, and takes 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 which will increase parcel processing capacity.”
Achim Dünnwald CEO, DHL Parcel Europe, praised Fuller for his work so far: “Peter Fuller has been instrumental in building UK Mail into one of the country’s largest parcel and mail service providers,” he said. “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.”
Peter Fuller joined UK Mail as group operations director in 2016. Prior to joining UK Mail, Peter worked for Parcelforce Worldwide for 19 years, where he was operations director.
