Tom Allason

CEO, Shutl

I caught the startup bug in my teens and never recovered.

In '03 I founded eCourier.co.uk, the online courier company with the purple vans in after a bad experience with my local courier firm. I served as eCourier’s CEO from inception, overseeing the company’s growth to team of 250+.

I left eCourier in '08 to start working on Shutl, a web-service that connects retailers with same-day courier firms enabling immediate & convenient delivery of online and in-store purchases.

Shutl was named UK's best VC backed business at 2010 Startups Awards and won the Guardian's Breakthrough Technology Award in 2011. The service currently operates across 75% UK, retail partners include: Argos, Maplin, Oasis, Karen Millen, Warehouse, Coast & Laithwaites Wine.

Away from couriers I occasionally help other early-stage start-ups. I am also a trustee of FoundationStone, a charitable trust that makes seed donations to start-up charities.
