Deliveroo, the leading food delivery company, has announced the appointment of Carlo Mocci as the chief business officer for the UK and Ireland. Mocci will have responsibility for running the UK and Ireland markets. He will report directly to the CEO, Will Shu, and also sit on the executive team.
Mocci joins from Amazon where over the last seven years he led the Amazon Fresh and Prime Now businesses for Europe and Japan and the UK Health and Beauty business. He also established Pan-EU infrastructure, systems and operating processes in commercial and supply chain domains.
Prior to this, Mocci was at McKinsey for 13 years where he was a partner and a core leader of the Retail practice.
