‘Pay at table’ hospitality app OderPay has appointed David Charlton as Chief Commercial Officer.

OrderPay was founded by ex-senior executives from McDonald’s, Accenture and Pret A Manger. The company is run as a cooperative coalition, which sees 30% of the profits of the organisation shared between its members.

Founding members include Five Guys, PizzaExpress, Stonegate and Cote and have been joined more recently by Hawthorn Leisure, Wasabi, Tortilla, Drake & Morgan, Chopstix, K10, Dim T, Pho and Wildwood.

Charlton joins the firm from his role as Commercial Director at hospitality tech firm Zonal.

Charlton brings 18 years’ experience, having worked in both the hospitality and mobile payment solution industries, with brands such as Bookatable, as UK Sales Director, and Zapper.

OrderPay and Zonal have announced a partnership between the two technology players, which aims to enhance OrderPay’s suite of tech functions by providing a solution for operators which complements their current offering whilst enhancing the customer experience.

Charlton said: ““I’ve seen first-hand how important Zonal is to operators, so this partnership is a big step forward in helping the hospitality sector innovate and use tech to provide a seamless experience for customers.”

Stuart McLean, CEO of Zonal added: “We would like to thank David for his commitment and hard work over these last five years and wish him every success with his new endeavour.”
