Online food delivery service Deliveroo has appointed current CEO at Meridian Energy and Powershop Australia, Ed McManus, as CEO of its Australian business.

McManus has been CEO at both Meridian Energy and Powershop Australia since January 2016, and before then was general manager at Powershop and also previously held leadership roles at REA Group and GlaxoSmithKline.

“I am delighted to take on this exciting challenge. I’m passionate about food and passionate about growing companies that are built on innovation and breaking new ground. Deliveroo combines both,” McManus said.

“The scale of the opportunity ahead is huge and one the whole team is looking forward to taking on.

“Deliveroo wants to become the definitive food company and so we will make sure we cater for every food occasion and bring people the amazing food they want, whenever and wherever they want it.”

Deliveroo says McManus’s immediate priorities in the role will include increasing restaurant selection on the platform, to offer consumers the “widest choice of all food delivery operators in the country and to continue to improve operations”.

Last month Deliveroo announced that Greg Ellis would join the company as a senior adviser to Deliveroo Australia and the company says the appointment of McManus gives it a leadership team with “huge knowledge of successfully scaling businesses in Australia”, and to see the company through its “next phase of rapid growth”.

This year Deliveroo also announced the appointments of Laura Huddle, formerly at Eventbrite, as commercial director; Jeremy Brook, formerly at Google, as head of marketing; and Joanne Woo, formerly at GE, as head of corporate affairs.
