As the COO Emma will be responsible for the company’s day-to-day global operations in sales, service and marketing, with a primary focus on executing the company’s growth strategy in the United States, Europe and Australia. Emma will continue to focus on driving strong customer growth and revenue performance to help aggressively scale the business.

  • Mike Cook is promoted to Chief Information Officer (CIO). Mike joined the company as a software developer almost six years ago. In his new role, Mike will be responsible for overseeing the organisation’s entire IT infrastructure and development team, while maintaining Postcode Anywhere’s role as a technology leader and innovator in the address management industry. Mike will report to Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Jamie Turner, who said: “Mike has helped guide the company through a number of key strategic initiatives during his career here. He has an inherent understanding of our customers’ needs and has the experience and skill set to help steer our future IT developments.”

Guy Mucklow, CEO of Postcode Anywhere said: “Emma and Mike have been instrumental in the growth of Postcode Anywhere and we are proud to recognise their contributions to our collective success with these promotions. 

“One of the main challenges for most entrepreneurially led businesses is in making the transition to a more structured way of working as the business grows.

“At Postcode Anywhere while we have thrived working in a relatively informal way in the past, we have now got to the stage where our systems and processes need to be far more rigorous as we scale up for further growth.  As part of this change Jamie and I will be taking a step back to allow our senior management team to take full responsibility for the operational side of the business.

“Since joining Postcode Anywhere, both Emma and Mike have proven to be visionary leaders who have shown the level of commitment, determination and skill to help drive our very ambitious growth targets. I’m confident that they will continue to spearhead Postcode Anywhere’s global growth strategy and innovative leadership in the addressing market.”

This news follows the announcement that Postcode Anywhere were awarded for Business Growth at the HP Smart Business Awards last week.
