ezCater taps Janine Allo as first chief people and culture officer
ezCater announced a new, senior HR executive to support the growth of the rapidly-rising business catering marketplace, on the heels of its acquisition of Paris-based GoCater, a corporate catering ordering and spend-management platform. Janine Allo has been named chief people and culture officer. She comes to ezCater with 25 years of experience helping organizations grow in a changing environment. Her specialties include building teams and leading companies through change.
Allo was recently VP of Global Talent at Flex International, and there she helped the company grow amid major transformation and rebranding initiatives. Prior to Flex, she worked at Wildflower Bread Company as chief people officer, having oversight for all human resources capabilities and functions.
“ezCater has an inspiring, people-focused culture that gives all employees meaningful ownership of their outcomes,” said Allo, ezCater chief people and culture officer, in a company statement. “Our ‘culture recipe’ is not just words on paper. The team lives it every day, and it drives everything we do.”
ezCater has received recognition, spotlighting it as an employer of choice, including a 2018 Best Workplaces for Millennials award by Great Place to Work and Fortune, and a Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018. In June, ezCater raised $100M in series D funding led by Wellington Management LLP.
