Meet Laura Orchard
By Tom Glover
As our most recent employee, Laura Orchard, has a decorated history in the Transport/Logistics sector with over 35 years of industry experience at a variety of reputable companies.
As stated by herself, Laura is “taking the courier industry to another level” and is passionate about the new challenge faced in driving business growth at DeliveryApp.
Laura joins us following roles at DX Group, Transol Logistics, Crown Couriers, City Sprint, and ASAP Express among other roles within other Transport companies. Laura’s Business Development Manager role at DeliveryApp will see her primarily operate within the West Midlands region, where she has built up a vast network of connections and relationships within the area.
Laura’s business development expertise, knowledge of the Transport/Logistics sector, and networking prowess comes as a massive boost to the fast-growing sales team at DeliveryApp. As a superb addition to the team, her transport experience will be a huge benefit to the company and her experience will prove to be a real asset to her colleague’s in helping to reshape the approach of the sales team.
Speaking about this unique opportunity, Laura stated:
“I’m delighted to become a part of the DeliveryApp team, and I’m thrilled about the future vision of the business. As an innovative technological platform that connects businesses to self-employed couriers, I feel that there’s a real opportunity to revolutionise the Transport/Logistics industry that’s seemingly becoming more outdated as time goes on.”
“From my experience within traditional courier firms, I’m able to see how DeliveryApp aims to overcome many of the challenges faced by businesses on a daily basis and that’s one of the main reasons that I felt drawn to joining the team. Since starting my role, I’ve found that there’s a lot of talent within the business from employees who are specialists in their respective roles; and this is what I feel I also bring to the table as a Business Development Manager.”
Giving his thoughts on the new addition to the team, Sales Director, Justin Humphreys mentioned:
“Bringing Laura into the team is a win-win situation for us, as she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from her many roles throughout the industry. When we were searching for a Business Development Manager, we felt we needed a real expert in the industry and we believe we have found just that in Laura. I’m elated that she’s now a part of the team here at DeliveryApp and I’m thoroughly looking forward to her getting stuck in!”
