Hill will report to Pablo Ciano, Global CEO of DHL eCommerce: “We’re excited to have Stuart lead the UK operation as we ramp up for significant growth through the opening of our second hub. Stuart has a deep understanding of the eCommerce landscape, and the retailer perspective he brings will be invaluable in ensuring we hone our offering to the specific needs of our customers.”

Bringing significant eCommerce experience to the role, Hill has spent over two decades in retail logistics. Most recently, he was the COO at luxury fashion site Matches Fashion UK and has held senior operational roles with retailers including John Lewis, ASOS and Farfetch. In 2012, he co-founded an international delivery and returns company, wnDirect.

Hill says: “Drawing on over two decades as a loyal DHL customer, I am honoured to now contribute from within and continue the great work at DHL eCommerce UK. I look forward to re-engaging with the world of parcel delivery in a company recognised for its unparalleled breadth and scale as we forge ahead with expansion.”

Peter Fuller is retiring after seven years as CEO. During this time, he managed the integration of UK Mail into DHL and re-established the DHL brand as a primary domestic carrier in the UK.

Pablo Ciano continues: “Peter has been instrumental in establishing DHL eCommerce as a domestic powerhouse in the UK. He led a highly successful integration following the acquisition of UK Mail and established a whole new branch of the DHL family in the UK. Since then, he has put the business on a strong footing for future growth. We wish him the very best for his retirement.”
