Moonpig hires chief technology officer
Moonpig, the online personalised gifting, flowers and card retailer, has appointed Peter Donlon as chief technology officer.
Due to take up his position next week, Donlon will be responsible for bringing together Moonpig’s end-to-end technology infrastructure which encompasses web engineering, app development, production engineering and architecture.
The appointment follows Moonpig’s recent hiring of Andre Rickerby as chief marketing officer and a refresh of the brand in the summer as the company looks to target growth.
Donlon’s retail experience includes five years at Sainsbury’s as head of development where he introduced a range of customer facing apps, websites and back office systems.
Most recently he worked at Glue Home as head of software engineering where he led the development of the company’s smart access and in-home delivery solution.
Since August 2017, Donlon has also been advising the healthy, hi-tech vending company Mother Foods as non-executive chairman.
James Sturrock, managing director of Moonpig, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Peter to the team at such an exciting time for Moonpig. Peter’s experience and outlook will help us move forward at pace, delivering innovation and enhancing our services.”
