Meet DPD UK's CEO, Dwain McDonald
Dwain McDonald is CEO of the UK's favourite delivery company, DPD UK. Dwain joined DPD UK (Parceline as it was then) in 1988 as a 22 year-old Sales Executive and has worked his way up within the company, becoming CEO in March 2008.
He has presided over DPD UK's extraordinary growth and transformation in recent years, to the UK's number one next-day specialist, and the 'delivery company of choice' for the biggest and best-known retailers.
Today, DPD UK employs over 13,000 people in the UK, operates more than 8,700 vehicles from 65 locations and delivers over 230 million parcels a year.
Dwain's vision and leadership was behind the development of DPD UK's unique Predict service, which gives customers a one hour delivery window so they don't have to wait in all day, and lets them track their delivery driver as he makes his way to their home.
Dwain has been a constant champion for innovation and investment in technology, resulting in the creation and development of a series of award winning 'firsts' for DPD UK including; the Your DPD app, which is approaching 5 million app downloads in the UK, and Precise, which allows customers to select their own delivery slot.
