Greg Deacon joins shopping app Jisp


Shopping app Jisp has announced the appointment of Greg Deacon as its new chief customer officer.

Deacon has in December 2020 stepped down as the chief operating officer of the NFRN. He previously worked at Camelot and News UK.

Joining the Jisp team in February, he will be managing customer relationships and focusing on Jisp customers as a wider business strategy.

“Absolutely delighted to join Jisp to help cement our leading app proposition as the best-in-class mobile marketing, shopping and payment solutions for UK retail and further afield,” Deacon commented.

“I look forward to working with existing and new business partners, retailers and independent small business owners to develop our solutions we offer to the benefit of all.”

The shopping app provides same-day home delivery, click & collect, mobile payments and in-store scan & go services for convenience stores. 

Julian Fisher, founder and chief executive of Jisp, said: “For the last 10 months, whilst at the NFRN, we worked closely with Greg developing and implementing our shopping and payment solutions for their members. Now, as a member of Jisp’s senior team, we look forward to benefiting even further from his retail knowledge, skills and experience, as we take our services into new markets and globally into new territories.”
