He joins the Salford-based parcel delivery comparison site as it bulks up following a series of investments worth £1.5m from North West firms. In May it appointed a new marketing team and announced record results earlier this month.

Hill will be responsible for managing carrier relationships, driving new service initiatives and increasing business volumes.

He said: “I’m looking forward to finding fresh ways of giving My Parcel Delivery’s customers the best possible experience and exploring new market opportunities for the company at a time of rapid growth.”

David Grimes, My Parcel Delivery’s managing director, said: “Andy’s experience, knowledge and industry connections are enormously important as we move into our next phase of development.
