Beyond Meat has appointed Sanjay Shah as its new group chief operating officer, effective from 18 September 2019.
The US company offers a portfolio of plant-based meats, and Shah will assume responsibility for its global operations and production, carrying with him more than 25 years of industry experience.
Most recently, Shah has served as the senior vice president of energy operations at Tesla’s solar business.
Shah has previously held a variety of leadership roles at Amazon from 2011 to 2018, including vice president of North American Fulfillment Centers.
Prior to Amazon, Shah served as managing director of Southeast Asia of MFG.com and held his position as executive director at Dell for nine years.
Ethan Brown, president and CEO of Beyond Meat said: “Sanjay brings a wealth of experience in scaling and operating very high growth businesses, none more important in our consideration than Amazon, where Sanjay managed a majority percentage of North American fulfillment over the course of his career.
“Sanjay’s focus on making operational excellence a sustained competitive advantage, his experience in and appetite for global expansion, along with shared values and a tireless work ethic, makes him a welcome addition to the Beyond Meat family.”
