“As part of one business covering Royal Mail’s UK market, the changed structure will increase effectiveness and help us to focus on the most important business areas at a crucial time for Royal Mail .

“The new structures are all about becoming more focused, building our brand and keeping to clear priorities. Our marketing effort remains very focused on business results, giving customers the right choices and levels of service as competition intensifies,” said Paul Rich.

The new marketing structure will continue to have dedicated teams for key markets, such as advertising mail, express services and consumer. Sales and Customer Services will similarly include teams for different customer business areas, such as publishing, utilities and retail.
