Mr Pulido, who is from Venezuela, has worked for Amazon for 14 years and has spent time at fulfilment centres in Gourock, Milton Keynes and Daventry plus some time at Amazon in Luxembourg. His career background also includes roles in the oil, gas and food industries.

He said: “I’ve been with Amazon for a long time and my team at Peterborough is one of the most fun and talented groups of people with which I have ever worked.
