Chief executive Mike Hancox said: “As Yodel continues to invest in tech to deliver the best user experience for its customers, we are delighted to have Helen leading as CIO. Since joining Yodel five years ago Helen has played a pivotal role in transforming our IT operation – building an award-winning team whilst delivering unprecedented levels of service availability, helping colleagues to focus on clients and customers.”
Ms Marshall added: “I am looking forward to exploring new applications to help make deliveries even more seamless than ever and establish Yodel as the leading innovator of the logistics industry.”
