PayPoint makes new hire to lead parcels growth


PayPoint has announced the appointment of Gary Winter to the newly created role of parcel services director.

Winter has worked in the e-commerce and delivery industry for 17 years and has held senior positions with a number of UK parcel carriers including UK Mail, Royal Mail/Parcelforce and Hermes.

The appointment follows the new Collect+ agreement between PayPoint and Yodel, in December 2016, which opens the industry-leading service to other parcel carriers for the first time, so that more retailers and consumers can benefit from the convenience of Collect+.

Winter commented: “My role at PayPoint is to widen the usage of the Collect+ network and to make the industry leading Pick Up/Drop Off network available to as many on-line shoppers as possible, regardless of who they shop with. I’m looking forward to working together with retailers and carriers to increase the reach of this service and the value that it brings to their businesses”.

Tim Watkin-Rees, PayPoint’s business development director, commented: “We’re pleased that Gary has joined us to accelerate our parcel growth plans and his appointment is further evidence of our commitment to drive innovative services that consumers love and that give a real benefit to our retail partners.”
