What impresses you the most about CollectPlus?
‘I have been constantly impressed by our people, our retail partners and most importantly by the feedback from consumers since joining CollectPlus in early 2013’
‘CollectPlus is a great business, with a fantastic team. Working with the talent both inside and outside of our business to provide great service experiences to retail consumers provides an exciting and fulfilling challenge. As a business at the very heart of the digital revolution that we have seen in retail in the past 20 year is a real privilege – but one that means we can never be complacent and must continually innovate to ensure that we are providing the right services to customers both now and into the future.’
