Deliveroo has announced the appointment of a new vice president of strategic restaurant partnerships, as the company focuses on its next stage of growth.
New hire Adam Bishop has joined from his role with BBC Studios, as Deliveroo looks to increase its choice for customers by working with more restaurants.
The brand will also introduce new tools to help restaurants build their business and improve efficiency, with Bishop’s appointment part of this growth agenda.
As part of his new position, Bishop, who was previously senior vice president and chief commercial officer for EMEA key markets at BBC Studios for the last five years, will lead Deliveroo’s global enterprise account management, global new business and signature platform and commercial partnerships divisions.
Bishop will report to Eric French, Deliveroo’s chief marketplace officer.
During his time at BBC Studios, he was responsible for all commercial activity of the company through its consumer-facing markets in EMEA, including the distribution of TV channels and on-demand services.
Prior to the BBC, Bishop worked at Proctor & Gamble for 13 years covering accounts such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose.
The appointment comes at an important time for Deliveroo following strong growth and consumer engagement this year.
In Q2, GTV in the UK and Ireland grew 87% year on year to £921 million, whilst orders rose 94% year on year to 38 million over the same time period.
Deliveroo spokesperson said: “We are excited that Adam has joined Deliveroo as Vice President of Strategic Restaurant Partnerships. He brings a huge amount of valuable knowledge and experience to the business.
“Adam will lead our strategic restaurant partnerships globally and play a leading role to help Deliveroo improve and expand our restaurant proposition and develop strategic and long-lasting relationships with our partners.”
