Just Eat marketer Peter Duffy named interim CEO following Peter Plumb departure

Just Eat’s top marketer, Peter Duffy, has been named interim chief executive following a decision by incumbent Peter Plumb to step down with immediate effect.

The online food delivery portal has now embarked on the process of finding a permanent replacement for Plumb but has set no firm date for this to be achieved.

Plumb’s exit comes as the online food order and delivery service reported facilitating 221m food orders in 2018, generating revenue of £780m and underlying EBITDA of between £172-£174m.

Last month Just Eat handed its newly unified global creative account to McCann.

Duffy previously held the top marketing role at budget airline EasyJet.
