Yodel’s chief financial officer Andrew Peeler has been promoted to CEO with immediate effect.
Peeler joined the delivery service company in September after holding senior executive and board positions at Unilever, Cadbury Schweppes and Bupa.
He will take over from Mike Cooper, who is leaving Yodel at the end of the month to become chief executive of Eurostar.
Yodel executive chairman Dick Stead said: “I am very pleased that Andrew has accepted the challenge and look forward to him driving the business forward. He has demonstrated rigour and focus and provided clear direction.
“He is passionate about investing in people to build a successful future and with his extensive experience, he is ideally placed to step up to the CEO role.”
