Royal Mail ousts head of UK post after turbulent summer

Royal Mail has ousted the head of its UK post and parcels division and appointed a new deputy chairman with a background in worker relations, in an effort to stabilise the group after months of upheaval. Royal Mail also said it had appointed the head of its audit and risk committee Keith Williams as deputy chairman with immediate effect. Mr Williams, who was an executive chairman of British Airways until 2016, has "a very strong track record in operational transformation, digital strategy and industrial relations, including pensions," Royal Mail said. On Wednesday, shares in Royal Mail edged up 2 per cent. "The Board would like to thank Sue Whalley for the significant contribution she has made to Royal Mail across a whole range of issues over the last twelve years. She has a strong track record of driving operational and cultural change, supporting letters, and implementing digital transformations to support the growth of the parcels business. We wish her well in the future," said chairman Les Owen.
