Fash Sawyer to be Chief Transformation Officer at Hermes UK

Hermes UK has appointed Fast Sawyer as its Chief Transformation Officer.

Sawyer has a track record of helping businesses organise themselves for future growth, and joins the carrier from Anchorage Capital where he was an MD of their Portfolio Group. There he was working with the fund’s European portfolio on ambitious transformation programmes.

At Hermes UK, Sawyer will develop a transformation portfolio focusing on business-wide initiatives that include driving process improvements, spearheading a new ESG strategy, entering new markets and creating new products designed to support Hermes’ growing numbers of retail and SME clients.

“My Directors and I are pleased to welcome Fash on board, and we’re also proud to be attracting such a strong calibre of talent to our team. We have achieved momentous growth from £350 million turnover seven years ago to what will be almost £1.5 billion this year, so it’s vital that we continue to make the right investments in our business. Our parcel volumes have soared from 400m last year to over 600m this year and Fash will help us to think a bit differently, bring a fresh perspective and will really complement the skillsets that we already have in the business,” said Martijn de Lange, CEO at Hermes UK.
