Photobox hires former JustEat boss as chair

By Simon Neville

The former boss of Moneysupermarket and Just Eat has joined Photobox as its new chairman, the company has announced.

Peter Plumb will oversee the business, which owns online card retailer Moonpig, as it launches new products and taps further into consumer demand for printing hard copies of digital pictures.

"This is one of the UK's great technology pioneers and success stories, a household brand serving millions of customers across Europe each year," he said.

"It is exciting to work with such a talented team to help drive the business forward."

Mr Plumb's arrival comes as the firm revealed it has printed more than five billion images for customers and is focusing on new products such as its Photobox Easy Create system to make bespoke products from digital libraries using "emotionally intelligent" artificial intelligence.

The new chairman will be hoping to put behind him a difficult time at Just Eat, where he quit the top job after just 18 months.
