Four months after it appointed a new CEO, SkipTheDishes has installed a brand-new interim CEO.

Steve Puchala, the company’s senior vice-president of growth and partner success, will take over as the interim head of the Winnipeg-based Canadian food delivery company.

His predecessor, Howard Migdal who was only CEO of SkipTheDishes for four months, has been appointed executive vice-president of North America and CEO of GrubHub, Just Eat’s U.S. business.

The company said the moves were made because of the decision by the current GrubHub CEO to step down.

A company spokesperson said Puchala would be splitting his time between Winnipeg and Toronto.

Migdal took over only two months after the company laid of 350 people in Winnipeg which was part of the re-balancing many companies — especially technology companies — undertook after intense workforce build up to handle high demand in the food delivery business during the pandemic. But since then consumers have chosen to eat out more often, something they could not do during the social distancing mandates.

Revenue from Just Eat’s North American operations were up 3.2 per cent in 2022 to $3.7 billion.

A company statement said Puchala “played a critical role in driving growth and scale at Skip.”

Migdal will continue to have oversight of the Canadian business as executive vice-president of North America.
