Matt Maloney Selected for Just Eat Management Board and Adam DeWitt Promoted to Grubhub CEO

June 15, 2021

Grubhub today announced two new senior leadership appointments in coordination with the close of the Just Eat (JET) transaction effective immediately. Founder and current CEO Matt Maloney will become a member of the JET Management Board and current President and CFO Adam DeWitt has been promoted to Grubhub CEO.

As part of the JET Management Board, Matt will be one of four executives running the global business, have a specific focus on North America, and be in charge of global integration and coordination. Adam will lead all functions across the U.S. business in his new role.

Commenting on the new appointments, Matt Maloney, the Founder of Grubhub and new member of the JET Management Board, said, “The closing of the transaction with JET is an appropriate time for this management transition. As we enter the next chapter, both JET and Grubhub are well positioned and poised for further success, with a shared purpose in serving our restaurant partners.

I’m excited to join the JET Management Board – our combined company is the leading online food delivery platform globally, and I look forward to helping tackle the global opportunities in front of us and extend our leadership position around the world.

I’m also confident that Adam will be successful in further building on the incredible progress that we’ve made at Grubhub in a relatively short period of time. He has been an indispensable part of our executive team going all the way back to 2011, even before our merger with Seamless. Adam’s leadership has been instrumental in our growth from $20 million in revenue in 2011 to over $2 billion.”

Adam DeWitt, the new CEO of Grubhub, said, “I’m honored to be the next CEO of Grubhub and ready to continue the great progress we’ve made over the past year in the U.S. We have a strong position in most large markets, the best team, and I am excited to join our partners at JET to build the leading global online ordering platform.

The increased scale, resources and support as part of JET will help us differentiate and capture a disproportionate share of growth in the U.S. Grubhub will now have greater flexibility to make strategic, long-term investment decisions than before. We are laser focused on being the platform of choice for diners, restaurants and drivers.”
