I’m delighted to have Helen’s experience and insight to help grow Deliveroo’s offer for customers, partners and riders across the country.”

The scale of the opportunity ahead is huge – Deliveroo wants to become the definitive online food company, and I look forward to reaching ever more Irish customers and bringing them more choice and value.”
