and will be replaced by Howard Migdal, CEO of SkipTheDishes
CHICAGO, March 13, 2023 — Grubhub, a leading online food delivery platform, announces today that CEO Adam DeWitt, will step down from his position. Howard Migdal has been appointed executive vice president of North America and CEO of Grubhub. Migdal, a U.S. national, is currently the CEO of SkipTheDishes, Just Eat Takeaway.com’s Canadian subsidiary. DeWitt will remain with the company through May 1, 2023 to ensure a smooth transition.
Under DeWitt’s leadership for the past 11 years as CFO, President, and most recently CEO, Grubhub has grown from $20 million to more than $2 billion in annual revenues, with a network of more than 365,000 restaurants and approximately 400,000 delivery partners in more than 4,000 cities across the United States. DeWitt’s contributions to the company have been significant, including leading the company through its initial public offering in 2014 and the acquisition by Just Eat Takeaway.com in 2021.
Migdal has played a critical role in driving growth and scale at SkipTheDishes, Canada’s largest food delivery network. He brings more than 16 years of experience in food delivery, having co-founded GrubCanada, Canada’s first national food delivery platform in 2008.
“On behalf of the entire Management Board, I want to thank Adam for all his contributions at Grubhub,” said Jitse Groen, CEO of Just Eat Takeaway.com. “We are grateful for his leadership and dedication to the company, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. We are also excited to promote Howard as the new leader of our North America segment and Grubhub’s new CEO,” Groen added. “He has a proven track record as a leader with a deep understanding of our business, and we are confident in his ability to lead and grow the business into the future.”
“I am honored to take on the role leading our North America business and becoming the CEO of Grubhub,” said Howard Migdal. “Grubhub is an incredible brand and has tremendous scale through its restaurant and delivery networks. I am excited to build on the foundation built by Adam and the team.”
“It’s hard to leave Grubhub, but it’s the right time for me after 11 years, “ said Adam DeWitt. “I am incredibly proud of what this team has accomplished and will forever value the relationships I’ve forged here. Grubhub is in great hands with Howard and the Grubhub leadership team, and I’m excited to watch the company continue to thrive.”
