Deliveroo appoints new VP of Strategic Restaurant Partnerships

Deliveroo has announced the appointment of Adam Bishop as Vice President of Strategic Restaurant Partnerships.

Bishop will have responsibility for leading the Global Enterprise Account Management, Global New Business, Deliveroo Signature platform and Commercial Partnerships divisions within Deliveroo. Adam joined this week and will report to Eric French, Deliveroo’s Chief Marketplace Officer.

Bishop joins from BBC Studios (the international production and content financing & distribution division of the BBC) where over the last 5 years he was the Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer for EMEA Key Markets.

He was responsible for all commercial activity of BBC Studios through its consumer-facing markets in EMEA including the distribution of TV channels and on-demand services such as BBC First, BBC Earth, BBC Brit, BBC Lifestyle and BBC Player, as well as co-production and content licensing to major partner broadcasters and platforms.

Prior to the BBC, Bishop worked at Procter & Gamble for 13 years covering a wide-range of senior commercial and management roles, including the cross-functional leadership of the Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Tesco Household accounts and leading the UK and Ireland commercial strategy teams for P&G’s Female Beauty brand portfolio.

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 £921m, whilst orders rose 94% year on year to 38 million over the same time period.

The company is focused on increasing choice and selection for customers, working with more restaurants and grocery partners and offering new tools to help restaurants grow their business and improve efficiency.

This includes the white label offering, Signature, which enables restaurant partners to create a direct channel to consumers for delivery, while leveraging Deliveroo’s technology platform, logistics network and customer care service.

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.”
