Biography

In 2014 Tim Robinson launched Doddle and by 2017 Doddle has become the world's leading Click and Collect business.

Doddle connects modern online shoppers with the best, most convenient locations to pick up and return purchases. For example, in the UK Doddle enables customers of EBay, Amazon and ASOS to collect their online purchases at Morrisons, Debenhams and B&Q and return unwanted items through the same stores.

Doddle’s technology platform is now being used by major multichannel retailers to power their own in-store click and collect propositions and is being deployed by major parcel carriers across the world to create local pick up solutions.

Tim is a non-executive director on the board of Stockholm based PE backed Hector Rail Group and is an Associate Director of London based corporate finance boutique Corbett Keeling.

Tim Robinson, Doddle CEO, said: “Returns are a huge headache for retailers but they’re not going away. For many online shoppers, they’re a right and necessity – the online equivalent of the pile of clothes you used to hand back to the shopping room assistant in store."
