Toon Gyssels, Co-Founder & CEO, Foodora
Toon Gyssels is a former rock star turned CEO. While completing a 'traditional' career path (from civil engineer to partner at Mckinsey), his passion for hardcore and metal took him touring across Europe many times.
After having lived off take-way pizza for too many nights, Toon saw an opportunity and decided to turn his entrepreneurship hobby into serious business - he moved to Australia to launched foodora in June 2015.
foodora has seen incredible successes since then: growing a team from 1 to 100 employees, a group of restaurant partners from from 50 to 1500 and a network of delivery riders from 20 to 2000 all in in just 1 year.
Toon strongly believes in culture as enabler of performance. The culture at foodora is all about the care for the customer and the restaurant externally, and internally it's about challenging each other and growing together.
