Graham Corfield, Chief Operating Officer for Just Eat, joins the high profile line up of speakers at the Cultivating Retail Conference, sponsored by Evergreen Garden Care, which takes place on 19 November 2019 at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.
Graham will be talking about the challenges involved in operating Just Eat - the leading global brand hybrid marketplace for online food delivery. This will include how they are working to eliminate single use plastic, running a larger operation with many different ‘suppliers’ and the sustainability of a business both economically and environmentally.
As Chief Operating Officer at Just Eat, Graham is responsible for the commercial performance of Just Eat markets, overseeing and coordinating trading and new business globally. Graham joined the business in 2011 as UK Finance Director, taking on the role of UK Managing Director in 2013. He was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in June 2019. As UK Managing Director, Graham oversaw countless success stories for the business, evolving the brand and championing their restaurant partners to drive their success and was instrumental in helping scale Just Eat UK into its market leading position.
HTA President Boyd Douglas-Davies comments, “We are delighted that Graham is joining the Cultivating Retail line up. It is always invaluable to hear from businesses outside of our own industry. Whilst they may operate on a larger scale and with different products many of the challenges they experience with regard to sustainability and supply chains are similar to those experienced in the garden industry. There are always great takeaways from sessions like this – excuse the pun!”
Graham joins the programme which also includes keynote speaker, Sir Terry Leahy, former Tesco CEO, who will be sharing his perspectives and experience on horticulture, retail, and how environmental and sustainability trends are set to affect consumers and the demands they make of retailers and brands.
