Electio appoints national sales manager

Delivery management platform Electio has appointed Anthony Smith as national sales manager.

With almost two decades’ experience working for some of the biggest names in the industry, Smith has joined Electio, part of MPD Group, from GFS, where he was multichannel director.

He has also previously worked with Hays DX, HDNL (now Yodel), and CollectPlus.

As national sales manager, Smith will be responsible for building direct relationships with leading retailers in the UK’s ecommerce space as well as managing Electio’s channel partnerships.

David Grimes, CEO of Electio parent company, MPD Group, said: “Anthony will be joining us with a proven record in managing multichannel partnerships. Having been part of the team that brought CollectPlus to market, Anthony certainly has a history of making the projects he works on a success.

Smith commented: "I’m delighted to join the team in bringing this exciting new product to market. I know from talking to retailers that customers are demanding more convenient delivery options all the time. The market has been crying out for new technology that provides more delivery choices, quickly and efficiently."

"Electio presented me with an opportunity to work with the right product at exactly the right time. We’re currently in a one-dimensional industry that’s ripe for change so to be a part of the team that’s delivering the answer is quite thrilling."

Part of MPD Group, Electio’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform allows retailers to offer options such as click and collect, international or nominated day delivery to their customers.
