Red Hot Penny has experienced strong growth since joining SEKO Logistics and we find ourselves increasingly working with established and international brands. Mark has a huge wealth of experience and we feel the time is right for him to join us and help develop our cross-border ecommerce proposition.

Mark Bolitho said:
I was aware of Metakinetic [RHP’s previous company name] from my ecommerce broker days three or four years ago. Red Hot Penny’s Managing Director informed me about the SEKO Logistics and RHP merger and I felt the offering was more than compelling. With international expansion being such a hot topic, I thought the timing was perfect to take the venture into a new market with Red Hot Penny.
