The Snappy Group, the parent company of delivery platforms Snappy Shopper and Hungrrr, has announced the appointment of Barry McGonagle as chief financial officer.
McGonagle joins with considerable leadership experience in the technology sector having previously held senior finance roles within Trip.com Group and Skyscanner, where he built the finance function to support the company’s rapid international growth. A Chartered Accountant, he started his career with Deloitte.
“I am very pleased that Barry has agreed to join our senior leadership team,” Mike Callachan, co-founder and chief executive of The Snappy Group, said.
“His experience with start ups and high-growth technology businesses, as well as larger corporations will be extremely valuable to the Snappy Group as we pursue our goal to support more and more local businesses to bring on demand convenience to local communities across the UK and beyond.”
McGonagle said: “I was drawn to the mission of empowering local businesses to serve their communities online and I’ve been hugely impressed with what the team have managed to achieve in such a short space of time. Snappy is on an exciting journey and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of it.”
The appointment is the latest of several senior hires in recent months at Snappy following a successful fundraising last year, the proceeds of which are currently being used to accelerate the group’s next phase of growth, including investments in people, technology, partner services and marketing.
In December, the company strengthened its senior sales team with the appointments of Paul Adams as group sales director and Alasdair Lindsay as head of hospitality sales at Hungrrr.
