Silicon Beach Radio - Strange Destinations with Dan O’Grady

Aug 26, 2019

Marshall Hughes, founder of Passel shares his tale of a self-confessed "space nut" growing up in a job oriented community, falling into a career in logistics and becoming an entrepreneur due to a software glitch. We also talk about energy versus time management, parallel universes and how Australian startups tend to look the world in a unique way.

Marshall has over 25 years experience in logistics, and until 2016 was Chief Operating Officer of Myfreight; a freight management, brokerage and software company based in Ringwood.

In 2016 Marshall founded Passel - a service for retailers where shoppers deliver on their way home to online shoppers.

Passel launched in Melbourne in April 2018 and has since expanded to stores in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Mornington.

Launch in Ireland and Northern is planned for late 2019 after Passel won a worldwide competition and funding from the cities of Dublin and Belfast.

When not working on Passel, Marshall is a Productivity coach and tries to spend some time with his wife Jackie, and 5 children ranging from 18 months to 19 years.
