Beginning September 18, Plumb will replace the current interim CEO, Paul Harrison. After appointment of Plumb, Harrison will continue in the role of Chief Financial Officer.
Making a statement on this new development, Plumb said he is delighted to join Just Eat on the brink of exciting days ahead. He added that the team at Just Eat is extremely talented and have transformed an innovative service into a global platform with clearly defined leadership positions across the world. He said he was looking forward to working with the employees and restaurant owners and help people around the world to enjoy food, wherever and whenever.
After serving MoneySupermarket.com for 8 years, Plumb left the organization in May 2017. During his tenure as CEO, he spearheaded the acquisition of rival firm MoneySavingExpert.com and practically increased the share price twofold.

Interim chairman of Just Eat, Andrew Griffith, said Plumb is a great leader and demonstrated capability of creating value for shareholders in high growth consumer business. The Board of Directors gave unanimous consent in bringing him on board because he advocates for innovation, his passion for customers, and his ability to drive international brands on a global scale are evident from the way he managed MoneySupermarket.com. This made Plumb the best choice for Just Eat.
