CouriersPlease announces new CFO

CouriersPlease new Chief Financial Officer, Marc Jacobson.

With the aim of continued growth within the e-commerce sector, CouriersPlease has appointed a new Chief Financial Officer.

Marc Jacobson, who previously spent eight years at Australia Post, will join the CouriersPlease senior leadership team.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Marc to the team,” said CouriersPlease CEO, Richard Thame.

“His impressive track-record overseeing business growth is a huge win for us, but it is his tenacious attitude and innovative thinking that will help CouriersPlease on its trajectory in being the fastest growing parcel and courier service in Australia.”

During his time at Australia Post, Jacobson helped build its parcels division, developing more than ten new parcel sites.

He’s previously worked at companies including Wesfarmers Industrial & Safety, Best & Less and KPMG.

Jacobson said that although there are economic headwinds to be managed, he is confident that as e-commerce continues to grow, CouriersPlease will remain in a good position.

“Considering UK e-commerce sales make up around a third of total retail sales, and Australia is currently sitting at around 20 per cent, we know that there is a considerable area of room for growth,” Jacobson said.

“With a superb team of staff and a network of hardworking franchise partners, I have no doubt that this can be achieved.”
