Food delivery startup DoorDash Inc. has hired Keith Yandell as its first general counsel. Yandell comes from Uber Technologies Inc., where he was recently promoted to director of litigation.
Yandell will have some familiarity in his move from on-demand rides to on-demand meals. Last month, Uber rolled out a stand-alone app for UberEats, a service in 13 cities that lets customers make delivery orders from nearby restaurants.
"Keith's diverse background and extensive experience makes him a strong fit for DoorDash," said Tony Xu, the company's co-founder and CEO in a prepared statement. "As DoorDash continues to grow, we're proud to be building out our management team with experienced managers and leaders in their fields."
