Ms Zemba has led every Deliveroo fundraise since the Series A, including the latest Series G led by Amazon. The company has raised a total of almost $1.53bn.

Ms Zemba oversaw Deliveroo’s acquisition of US food company Maple in May 2017, which brought Deliveroo new technology and expertise in developing physical kitchens designed specifically for delivery. And she led Deliveroo’s move to make all of its permanent employees shareholders in May 2018.

Catie Sheret, General Counsel

She trained at Linklaters, having graduated in law from the London School of Economics, and was in the Commercial team at Charles Russell before the move in-house.

Her ambition is to help the organisations she works for appreciate the value that in-house lawyers and compliance professionals bring. She also thinks in-house colleagues can do a lot more to help demonstrate that value. She is particularly interested in bringing operational and process focus to her team’s work to ensure that it delivers that value.
