Martijn de Lange, CEO
Martijn de Lange, 40, is CEO of Hermes, the second largest carrier in the UK delivering more than 330 million parcels on behalf of 80% of the UK’s top retailers, including Next, ASOS, John Lewis, Arcadia and BooHoo. Martijn was born in Holland and has lived and worked in the UK for the past 12 years. He is married with 2 children and is a keen tennis player.
After helping to establish TNT Post in the UK (now known as Whistl), Martijn moved to Hermes, where over the last 6 years, Martijn has overseen the company double in size and driven a transition to a digital-first business thanks to significant investment in Hermes’ Digital Futures programme. Keen to move away from the traditional logistics culture, Martijn is guiding Hermes UK to put the customer experience at its heart, led by technology and is passionate about the company’s proposition of ‘premium services that don’t cost the earth.’
