Just Eat UK founder rejoins judging panel

We’re delighted to welcome back David Buttress to the Great British Entrepreneur Awards judging panel for 2020. 

The former Just Eat CEO is both a former winner and judge with the Awards, but took some time out as he stepped in a new direction as chairman of Welsh rugby union region, the Dragons.

David joined Just Eat in 2006 to launch its business in the UK and was appointed CEO in January 2013, leading it from start-up to Europe’s largest tech IPO in more than 10 years. 

GBEA founder Francesca James said: “I’m delighted David has agreed to rejoin us on the judging panel this year after what was an incredibly important period as he began his tenure with the Dragons. 

“He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the panel, as well as a strong understanding of what it’s like to be a winner.”

Applications for the 2020 Great British Entrepreneur Awards in partnership with Starling Bank open in March.
