Snappy Shopper Chief Operating Officer, Mark Steven, has left the business.

Steven joined as CEO in March 2019 prior to seed funding, before becoming group COO in April 2021.

Mike Callahan, CEO, commented: “Mark leaves with our gratitude. Mark has been instrumental in getting us to where we are today, most notably navigating us from a fledgling start up, to a scaling business, securing £19.6m at a Series fundraise and also developing key strategic partnerships, including Paypoint plc. He has played a pivotal role in growing the Snappy business and developing it into the foremost convenience store home delivery player in the UK. Whilst disappointed to lose Mark, we thank him for all the effort and contribution he has made to Snappy and wish him well for the future.”

Mark Steven said: “I am enormously proud to have contributed to the incredible success of Snappy Shopper. Creating a phenomenal team from zero to grow Snappy from three stores to over 1,500 has been a very satisfying achievement. The most rewarding part, however, has been enabling retailers to not only protect but also significantly grow their businesses in challenging times. I plan to take a short break before embarking on the next chapter of my career.”
