Deliveroo, the food delivery app service, has announced that Michael Healy, formerly Chief Marketing Officer of  FTSE 250-listed The Restaurant Group, has taken over the reins for Deliveroo as General Manager in the Republic of Ireland. Deliveroo is an award-winning delivery service founded in 2013 by William Shu and Greg Orlowski.

Deliveroo works with over 80,000 best-loved restaurants and takeaways, as well as 60,000 riders to provide the best food delivery experience in the world. Deliveroo is headquartered in London, with 2,500 employees in offices around the globe

The Restaurant Group (TRG) is the UK’s largest listed casual dining company which includes brands such as Wagamama in its portfolio. Michael, who is from Kilmacud in Dublin, comes with a  wealth of experience in ecommerce having previously been Commercial Director at Paddy Power.

The appointment follows Deliveroo’s announcement of its most recent financing round of $575 million, and comes as the company prepares to accelerate its expansion in Ireland, and the outer Dublin area in particular. The company plans to reach at least 200,000 more households by the end of 2019 compared to the start of the year. This expansion underlines how ambitious Deliveroo is for Ireland.

Dan Warne, Deliveroo MD for UK and Ireland, said: “Michael is a real star hire and we’re very happy to have him on-board. Deliveroo is highly ambitious in Ireland, and I know the team there are absolutely dedicated to reaching even more customers to bring them a wider selection of amazing restaurants, whenever and wherever they want.”

Commenting on his appointment Michael Healy said: “I’m delighted to be joining Deliveroo at such an exciting time. I can’t wait to work with the Dublin team to bring Deliveroo’s service to ever growing numbers of Irish consumers.  Consumers are rapidly changing how they buy and eat food. Deliveroo is at the leading edge of responding to these changing needs and I  couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to be a part of that.”
