Post Office names Martin Moran acting marketing chief

The Post Office has chosen head of financial services Martin Moran to lead its marketing department ahead of its proposed “mutualisation”.


Moran will take over the marketing director role on an acting basis in the new year from Gary Hockey-Morley, who is leaving the organisation at the end of the year after almost five years in the job.

The news follows the Government’s pledge to invest £1.3bn over the next four years in the Post Office network.

Business secretary Vince Cable has said he wants to create a John Lewis-style structure for the Post Office “where employees, sub-postmasters and communities get a greater say in how the company is run”.

Before joining the Post Office, Moran was marketing director of Cable & Wireless in the UK.

It is not thought that Hockey-Morley, who spent 13 years at Abbey National, most recently as director of marketing and customer retention, has a job to go to.

Since joining the Post Office in 2006, Hockey-Morley has overseen the launch of several product and service initiatives including its broadband offering and the expansion of its financial services business, a joint venture with the Bank of Ireland.

He oversaw the launch of a brand campaign to push the Post Office’s community credentials earlier this year.
