STAMP Free Limited, the digital postage company, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Seamus Yendole in the role of Business Development Director as the business progresses towards the commercial launch of its global award-winning AI phone-based alternative to traditional mailing and returns.
Seamus brings extensive experience from a range of senior commercial and technology roles. Having spent seven years as VP of Global Sales at Escher Group, he brings with him a wealth of postal industry knowledge having strategically developed the business in EMEA, APAC and Americas markets.

Award-winning Stamp Free Digital Postage Solution™ allows businesses and consumers to use the Stamp Free or white-labelled app to send parcels and letters, as well as return consumer goods, without the need for a postage stamp or carrier label. Utilising machine handwriting recognition as a core part of its technology, Stamp Free also benefits postal carriers by removing issues associated with postage stamps such as fraud, liabilities and the cost of printing. It is also beneficial for the environment with no extra machinery, stamps or printed postage labels required – just handwritten six or eight-digit codes, essentially handwritten barcodes – which are scanned and validated by AI at the source by a smartphone before the mail item is sent or returned.
Hugh Craigie Halkett, Managing Director of Stamp Free, said: “Stamp Free has ambitious plans for the remainder of the year and into 2023 and is at an exciting stage in its development with another fundraise by the end of the year and trials currently underway. Seamus will be key in helping us to achieve these ambitions and help us develop further in the logistics sector.”
