ezCater, the world’s largest online marketplace for business catering, today announced it has hired James (Jay) Rosenstock as Chief Strategy Officer and Mike O’Hanlon as Chief Sales Officer. These hires follow a $100 million Series D funding round and the acquisition of Paris-based GoCater earlier this summer. Rosenstock and O’Hanlon add new expertise to ezCater’s executive team and help position the company for future growth.
“Jay and Mike each bring experience that helps us aim higher and grow faster – two of our core tenets,” said Stefania Mallett, Co-founder and CEO at ezCater. ”On top of that, their decency, humor, and gravitas make them perfect culture fits.”
As Chief Strategy Officer, Rosenstock leads ezCater’s financial, international, and corporate development strategy. “ezCater’s growth has been tremendous and I’m looking forward to being part of the next chapter by helping forge strategic partnerships and scale internationally,” said Rosenstock.
Prior to ezCater, Rosenstock was Chief Corporate Development Officer at Vice Media, where he oversaw the company’s significant global expansion and raising of capital. Prior to Vice, Rosenstock served in various corporate executive and operational roles at companies including Discovery Communications and Sony. He began his career as an investment banker covering the media and technology industries.
As Chief Sales Officer, O’Hanlon leads strategic partnerships and sales for both sides of ezCater’s marketplace. “ezCater does an amazing job of helping business professionals succeed and restaurant operators grow their catering business. I’m thrilled to join to help expand and deepen relationships with our customers and catering partners,” said O’Hanlon.
Previously, O’Hanlon was Vice President of Corporate and Business Development at Wayfair for twelve years, where he developed key strategic partnerships with online marketplaces, media companies, and leading consumer brands. He founded and led Wayfair's media solutions business, launched and served as General Manager of the company’s European business, and led the buying team where he built relationships with over 3,000 supplier partners.
Rosenstock and O’Hanlon join recent additions to the executive team. Janine Allo joined as Chief People Officer in August, Stephen Leguillon as Head of Western Europe in July, and Michelle Smart as Vice President of Partner Operations in May.
