Online grocer Ocado has added ecommerce expertise from eBay to its board.

The company has appointed Douglas McCallum, senior vice president, Europe, at eBay, as a new non-executive director, it announced today. He will take up his new role from October 3. McCullum has been in his current job since 2008, and previously ran eBay’s UK business from 2002. Before that he held management positions at Capital Radio and Intel Corporation.

Ocado chairman Lord Grade said: “I am very pleased to welcome Doug to the Ocado board. His high-level background in ecommerce and IT is a most valuable addition to the skills and experience of the existing directors. He will make a significant contribution to Ocado’s plans for growth.

“Doug’s appointment marks Ocado’s latest step towards a board composition that fully complies with the UK corporate governance code.”

McCallum said: “Ocado is a smart online retailer with innovation and quality of service at the heart of everything that it does. I look forward to helping the business develop further and fulfill its long-term ambitions.”
