As General manager for the south of the UK and head of UK market launches for Deliveroo, Xavier launched and ran 40 markets. He built the business from a team of just two, doing less than 100 orders a day, to a team of 20 doing over 10k orders a day – in only two years. He also went on to run Deliveroo’s latest vertical – Deliveroo for Business, signing up major clients such as Facebook, Google and banks like Credit Suisse. Joining at series C, he helped play a significant role in Deliveroo turning into the £2 billion success story it is today

While still at university, Xavier also founded Nexus Notes, a marketplace for the buying and selling of course notes with his fellow students. The platform was voted in the top ed-tech start-ups in the Asia-pacific area and accepted into Australia’s leading accelerator. To date, the business has paid out over $200k USD to students around the world. Xavier took the business part time in order to join Deliveroo in 2015.
