Michael Boersen has been appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Yellow. He has been Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of the company since August 2010 and brings a vast amount of financial and leadership experience to the role.

We are delighted Michael has agreed to take on the leadership of Yellow and to lead the company into its next stage of development.

He leaves with our warmest wishes and gratitude for his important contribution to the company.
