Delivery Hero announces nominees for election to the Supervisory Board at Annual General Meeting


Berlin, 29 April 2024 – Delivery Hero SE (“Delivery Hero” or the “Company”), the world’s leading local delivery platform, today announced that the Supervisory Board’s Nomination Committee, following a thorough evaluation of the Supervisory Board’s composition, has selected four shareholder representative nominees to stand for election at its upcoming Annual General Meeting (“AGM”). The AGM will be held on 19 June 2024, at which time the terms of the six current Supervisory Board members expire.

The Nomination Committee, consisting of Dr. Martin Enderle, Jeanette Gorgas and Patrick Kolek, determined that the Company’s significant growth in size and complexity calls for an expansion of the Supervisory Board from six to eight members. Shareholders will have the opportunity to vote on this proposed expansion at the AGM. The increase will enable the inclusion of additional skills and expertise to best oversee the successful execution of the Company’s strategy and rapidly evolving operations in over 70 countries around the world.

The Company’s slate of shareholder representative nominees being put forward at the AGM includes:

  • Kristin Skogen Lund, outgoing CEO of Schibsted, a family of digital brands, who, upon election, is expected to become Chair of the Supervisory Board;
  • Dr. Martin Enderle, who, upon re-election as a Supervisory Board member, will ensure continuity of leadership while assisting in a seamless transition of Chair duties to Ms. Skogen Lund;
  • Roger Rabalais, Prosus Operating Partner, who is expected to assume the role of Chair of the Audit Committee; and
  • Scott Ferguson, Managing Partner of Sachem Head Capital Management, who is expected to become a member of the Strategy Committee.

In addition:

  • Jeanette Gorgas, after four years of dedicated service as Chair of the Strategy Committee and a member of the Audit and Nomination Committees, will not stand for re-election.
  • Patrick Kolek, after six years of dedicated service, and in light of his recent departure from Prosus and Naspers to become CEO of a private equity-backed company, will not stand for re-election and will be succeeded by Rabalais effective 1 May 2024.
  • Three employee representatives have already been nominated by the Company’s SE works council.
  • As part of expanding the Supervisory Board, a fourth employee-elected member will be appointed to the Board as well.

Delivery Hero would like to thank Jeanette Gorgas and Patrick Kolek for their insights and contributions, and Dr. Martin Enderle for his strong leadership as Chair since the Company’s IPO in 2017. Together with the employee-elected members of the Supervisory Board – Gabriella Ardbo Engarås, Nils Engvall and Dimitrios Tsaousis – these accomplished individuals have helped steer the Company through growth and market expansion to reach profitability and free cash flow breakeven during H2 2023. Under their tenures, Delivery Hero has emerged as a global leader in the food delivery space.

Dr. Martin Enderle said: “It has been a privilege working with Jeanette, Pat, Gabriella, Nils and Dimitrios during my tenure as Chairperson. I wish Jeanette and Pat well and appreciate their many valuable contributions during their time on the Supervisory Board. I am enthusiastic about the outstanding slate of new nominees we have proposed and know they will build on this excellent work. I look forward to welcoming and working with Kristin, Roger, and Scott.”

In connection with the proposal to elect Scott Ferguson as fourth member of the Supervisory Board, the Company and Sachem Head entered into a cooperation agreement which includes customary standstill and confidentiality provisions.
