Tracy Jump has been appointed as head of human resources at Rico Logistics.
Having experienced a period of organic growth which was further bolstered by the acquisition of DHL’s UK same day business, Jump’s role will focus on acquiring and developing the right personnel for the growing business.
The Rico Group, with its head office in Slough, Berkshire, was established in 1988 and has grown to become one of Europe’s largest field service logistics organisations operating in 12 European countries and India with further European subsidiaries set for launch in the coming months. Rico has revenues of £85m.
Before joining Rico, Jump worked for DHL UK for 10 years where she was head of HR and subsequently promoted to HR director.
She said: “Rico is at a key point in its growth and development strategy and HR will play a pivotal role in helping to shape Rico’s future.
“I will be developing the HR function which will involve automated IT systems for the HR payroll and processes.
“Working with business stakeholders will be vital to help shape the culture of the organisation by utilising fit for purpose policies and developing new and existing talent.
“I am very excited to be joining the business and look forward to the challenges the future holds.”
