Sendle makes 2 new board appointments

Australia’s national carbon neutral carrier Sendle has appointed a new Chief Financial Officer and Chief Logistics Officer.

Ned Sizer is to be the CFO of Sendle. He has more than 20 years of senior financial leadership experience. Joining from global car sharing marketplace Turo, Sizer is to help focus on growing the business.

At the same time Dennis Oates is to be Chief Logistics Officer. He has more than 25 years of experience in shipping and logistics including 16 years at FedEx and five with Amazon. He is to focus on building out and strengthening the national delivery network.

“Expanding our leadership team at this critical time reinforces our commitment to scale fast, strategically, and in line with our core mission and values,” said James Chin Moody, CEO and co-founder of Sendle. “We are proud to welcome both Ned and Dennis, and they’ve already shown during their short time with the company that their expertise will be incredibly valuable as we usher in a new era of shipping for small business.” 

Sendle has seen its global small business clients’ shipping grow by 65% in 2020, with parcel volumes in its Australian business growing by 103%.

“The e-commerce opportunity is exploding right now, but small businesses need help in order to compete against big-box retailers,” said Moody. “Affordable, reliable shipping is a key factor in whether or not you make it as an online seller. Sendle exists to level the playing field so small businesses can finally access the same shipping infrastructure and pricing as the big guys, but in a simple and streamlined way.”
