Post Office finds new tech boss
If the boss gets £3.5m what does the IT director get?
The Post Office will make Yvonne Ferguson its new Chief Information Officer when the current holder Robin Dargue departs.
The two have been working together and will continue to do so until the end of the month, when Dargue will join Alcatel-Lucent and Ferguson will take sole control, Computing reports.
The Post Office is combating government plans to sell it off or find other sources of funding for improving services.
Unions are also unhappy and were even less impressed with yesterday's news that ex-boss Adam Crozier pocketed £3.5m in pay, bonuses and pension payments for his last 12 months in the job. ®
You mean Royal Mail Group CIO
Post Office Ltd have their own Head of IT.
An example ...
of Royal Mail money-wasting.
We are a small business and use Royal Mail.
They telephoned us the other day to tell us our First Class mail rates remained the same. I told them we don't use First Class. Various keypresses in the background and she told us our Packetpost rates remained the same. I said 'Thanks, but you have already told us that in a letter!". To which she replied that they (Royal Mail) had to ring us as well.
And to think that Royal Mail once supplied HMG with millions of pounds profit each week!
Yet again you are wrong!
Yours was a factual inaccuracy.
