ArrowXL, the UK’s largest and longest established two-person home delivery specialist, announces the retirement of John McKenzie, a dedicated and accomplished Senior Strategic Account Manager who has been an integral part of the company for 37 years.

John joined the company in 1987 and has held a number of roles across the organisation, moving locations several times to take on various responsibilities. Most recently he was based in the Worcester depot where he managed ArrowXL’s largest account, responsible for over 1 million 2-man deliveries per year.

John played a pivotal role in fostering and maintaining key client relationships, contributing significantly to the company’s growth.  Over the years, he has successfully navigated the evolving logistics landscape, adapting to new challenges with a constant dedication to client satisfaction.

John commented: “I feel incredibly lucky to have worked for such a supportive organisation led by an accessible and passionate Senior Leadership team.  Throughout my career with ArrowXL I’ve been offered some fantastic roles and had the opportunity to work with a variety of departments.  No day has ever been the same, even in my final week!


“ArrowXL is a company that people are proud to work for and I wish them every success for the future.  I’ll miss my daily interaction with colleagues and clients but am looking forward to spending more time with my family and pursuing some personal goals.”

Charlie Shiels, CEO at ArrowXL, commented: “John has been an inspiration to many of our ArrowXL team. His commitment to creating a positive and collaborative work environment has contributed to the company’s strong sense of community.  We will miss him dearly and wish him every enjoyment in his well-deserved retirement.”
