Deliveroo has appointed its first head of construction.

The group has promoted Aimee Murzell from her role as Deliveroo Editions Project Manager to the newly created position.

Prior to joining Deliveroo in January, Murzell had spent two and a half years at Wyevale Garden Centres as senior development manager.

Last month, Deliveroo announced it was expanding to six new sites across London, providing nearly 50 new separate operator units in the process.

It announced new sites in Whitechapel, Islington, Crouch End, Swiss Cottage, Bermondsey and Wimbledon.
