Foodpanda Appoints Muntaqa Pracha as New Managing Director in Pakistan
Muntaqa Peracha has been hired as the Managing Director (MD) of foodpanda Pakistan, effective June 1, 2022.
Muntaqa will be in charge of foodpanda’s overall operations in the country, as well as its growth and expansion, as well as the introduction of new verticals, as MD. Muntaqa takes over as CEO following two and a half years as Commercial Director at foodpanda Pakistan, where he helped establish the brand as a household name in Pakistan.
Muntaqa was in charge of the company’s main food delivery operation throughout his time there, with an emphasis on establishing foodpanda as the preferred platform for participating merchants, consumers, and riders. He was instrumental in turning foodpanda into the country’s premier food and grocery delivery platform, forging important industry partnerships, empowering teams on the ground, and pushing significant investments in capacity building.
He also established new verticals like cloud kitchens and pandago, as well as foodpanda’s Logistics-as-a-Service vertical, which delivers quick, on-demand delivery, and grew the foodpanda Home Chefs programme to more than ten thousand registered home-based enterprises today.
Muntaqa adds his knowledge in emerging markets, strategy, growth, commercial innovation, and business/profitability turnarounds to the table, based on his more than 18 years of experience leading teams in high-growth IT firms in Pakistan and beyond.
“Muntaqa has been a vital part of foodpanda’s growth path for the past few years, and I’m convinced that under his guidance, the company will continue to grow across Pakistan and hit new milestones in the years ahead,” said Jakob Angele, foodpanda Asia’s CEO.
Muntaqa Peracha said, “I’m honoured to take up the role as MD of foodpanda Pakistan.” “I appreciate the faith placed in me by the foodpanda leadership team, and I look forward to leading the team as we expand our footprint in Pakistan and better serve our community of riders, merchants, and customers.”
