AMAZON has announced a new site leader who will oversee operations at its Omega fulfilment centre.

Prashant Pandey, 33, has worked for Amazon in the UK and US for three-and-a-half years and previously spent six years in the Merchant Navy.

He has also worked in the insurance industry and enjoys playing cricket in his spare time.

Prashant said: “I’m over the moon to join the team in Warrington and I’m looking forward to continuing my Amazon journey here.

"My main goals are to have a big impact on our community and to have a big impact on my team. I’ve already seen how talented and fun the team at Amazon in Warrington is and I’m excited for all the great things I know we will achieve together.”

The Omega site creates jobs and supports the community through charity and school donations. Some of the causes recently supported by Amazon include Great Sankey High School, MIND and Home-Start Warrington.
