UK independent parcel carrier Yodel has appointed industry expert, Ben Mitchell, as its new chief financial officer following a period as interim CFO.


Ben brings extensive knowledge and experience of the retail and logistics sector, having worked for The Very Group in a variety of finance and commercial roles, most notably as the business’s commercial director. During Ben’s three years in that role, he was instrumental in helping the business drive growth and continue its strong financial performance.


His most recent role prior to joining Yodel was as corporate finance director at Ellerman Investments Limited. Ben then held the role of interim CFO at Yodel before becoming a permanent member of the team in June.

Mike Hancox, Yodel CEO, commented: “It’s a pleasure to be able to welcome Ben onboard and I look forward to working closely with him. With 20 years’ experience he brings a wealth of knowledge to this role, which will be vital as we continue to strengthen our offering and grow as a company.”

I look forward to working closely with our colleagues as we strive to contribute to Yodel’s future success. I have great confidence in the direction we are going as a business, and firmly believe we are in a strong position to build on our recent successes.”
