Just Eat has appointed Claire Pointon as its new managing director for the UK and Ireland, replacing Andrew Kenny, who joined Just Eat Takeaway.com’s management board as chief commercial officer last year.
Claire has more than 20 years of commercial experience in customer strategy, brand innovation and marketing, most recently at John Lewis where she led the customer function, both digitally and in-store. Claire has also previously held executive-level and senior positions at multinational companies including Dixons Carphone, Kerry Foods and Deutsche Telekom.
Claire’s wealth of experience across the retail and technology sectors will strengthen the business, says Just Eat.
On her appointment, Claire said: “I’m delighted to be joining Just Eat Takeaway.com at such an exciting time for the business. Online food delivery is increasingly becoming a part of our daily lives, with more customers than ever looking for convenience and choice online. The passion from the team for leading the industry, our customers and partners is clear to see and I’m looking forward to leading the UK and Ireland’s next phase of the journey.”
