Former Sainsbury’s boss King backs Snappy Group delivery start-up

King, Justin

Former Sainsbury’s chief executive Justin King has joined Snappy Group, a start-up that helps local corner shops sell online, after personally making a “significant investment” in the business.

King has been named as a senior adviser to Snappy Group, the Scottish firm that owns Snappy Shopper, a tech platform allowing customers to order home deliveries or click and collect from local corner stores in 30 minutes or less. 

Snappy Group is currently in the process of raising money from investors and said it expected King to formally join its non-executive board once the fundraising round is complete.
