Deliveroo is reshufflling its executive team as it is revealed its chief technology officer, chief people officer and chief legal officer are all leaving.

The British company, which has a value of around $2 billion, is the leading food service across 12 countries including Australia, Spain, Hong Kong and the UAE.

CTO Mike Hudack is to leave after two-and-a-half years at the startup, Business Insider reports. He previously worked at Facebook, and is also a partner at new London venture capital firm Blossom Capital.

Chief People Officer Beth Clutterbuck has left for enterprise cloud company Cloudreach, and plans to move back to the US, Deliveroo said.

And Chief Legal Officer Rob Miller is leaving to pursue his own projects. Thea Rogers, Deliveroo's comms and policy specialist, will become chief communications, policy, and legal officer.

News of the departures comes just one week after Prolific London reported that Deliveroo has lost Roy Blanga, its chief operating officer.

Blanga apparently stepped down in December and was replaced by Rohan Pradhan, former VP and head of Deliveroo Editions.

Business Insider reports there is no direct replacement for Hudack, but his duties will be taken up by Vice President of Engineering Dan Winn, and new Chief Product Officer Akshay Navle.

Last week Prolific London reported that Deliveroo has hired Inés Ures from Treatwell to be their new Chief Marketing Officer.

Deliveroo was founded in 2013 by Will Shu, a banker in the City of London who was dissatisfied by the range of food he could get delivered. He created the app, which connects restaurants with riders working ad-hoc, and then with customers, creating a rapidly-growing and highly popular service.

Shu remains CEO, and has expressed no desire to sell it on. Rumours circulate about ride-hailing giant Uber making moves for Deliveroo’s acquisition, but sources have hinted that it would take an offer of at least $4 billion.
