 Ontruck thinks big with new hires

Last mile logistics venture, Ontruck, has announced two new executive hires: Nolan Andelin, former Senior Manager of Product Operations at Uber and Samuel McGuirk, who previously oversaw global operations at Just Eat.

Andelin is taking on the role of Head of Marketplace. “Silicon Valley is an amazing place and provides an opportunity to enjoy wildly diverse perspectives and approaches to the world, creativity is in abundance and I was lucky enough to have friends and colleagues who were interested in solving problems and open-minded enough to take new paths to any solution,” he says.

McGuirk, meanwhile, has been appointed as Ontruck’s Head of UK Operations. “Coming from Just Eat, a tech-driven business where operations play a pivotal role, I look forward to bringing the extensive consumer-focused approach to Ontruck,” he says. “It is a privilege to join such a disruptive, forward-thinking and data-oriented business and for me the real challenge is delivering a customer-centric operating model, providing benefits to both shippers and hauliers from a financial aspect but also creating an efficient logistics ecosystem here in London.”
