We don’t often focus on the people behind ecommerce businesses – the attention is all on CEOs, Marketplace Managers, and owners of small businesses, so today we want to recognise Max Butler as he celebrates 30 years service with independent parcel carrier Yodel.
Three decades is a long time and few in today’s world will stay with one company for the majority of their working career. Max Butler is today lead team manager at Yodel’s Truro depot but he first first joined the company in 1991 at the White Arrow depot in Daventry as a delivery driver, before becoming a night manager.
In 2008, Max and his family relocated to Cornwall and Max joined the Yodel team in the Truro depot. Max continued to work his way up the ladder and in 2019, he was appointed as lead team manager where he now manages a team of nearly 30 employed colleagues.
To celebrate his anniversary, Max’s colleagues presented him with £700 of Very.co.uk vouchers.
I enjoy every day as a lead team manager at the Truro depot – we’re a tight knit team with colleagues who work very hard to ensure our customers get the best parcel delivery experience they can get. The one thing I admire most about Yodel as a business is its willingness to help people progress. If colleagues are willing to put the work in, the company will support you all the way. It was lovely to celebrate my work anniversary with the team and I look forward to many more years with Yodel.– Max Butler, lead team manager, Yodel
Max has come a long way since he started out with the company. His loyalty, commitment, and hard work ethic are inspiring. Max is a valued member of our team and I look forward to seeing where Max’s career takes him. I wish him all the best for the future and a wonderful work anniversary.– Andres Insa-Stevens, depot manager, Yodel
