MENLO PARK, Calif., March 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Deliv today announced the appointment of former eBay Vice President of Product Management, Kenneth Pate, as Head of Product where he will be responsible for the Deliv experience across the same-day delivery service value chain, which includes retailers, shoppers, drivers and mall operators.
Pate's experience leading product and engineering teams to build world class retail products at eBay makes him a natural fit for Deliv. He is a product visionary who builds new solutions that help retailers provide world class customer experiences. Pate's expertise lies in driving innovation within complex, highly scalable, enterprise grade retailer systems.
"Consumers are going to expect same-day delivery, and retailers will need to meet that expectation. Given that building a delivery network yourself is impractical and no one wants to be disintermediated, retailers will benefit from working with a partner like Deliv who is solely focused on this specific business. Combine this with a stellar management team and there's no question Deliv is strategically placed to dominate the same-day space," said Pate. "I'm excited to be joining a very promising company at a dynamic time."
"We're thrilled Kenny has joined the Deliv team," said Daphne Carmeli, founder and CEO of Deliv. "He's an exceptional leader with a thorough understanding of retailers and their customers. He has an impressive track record building scalable world class products, and we're excited to have him help us execute the extensive roadmap to support our next phase of explosive growth."

By simply adding the Deliv same-day delivery option into their existing checkout process, the retailer preserves the customer shopping experience, fulfills orders from inventory from their local brick and mortar stores all while maintaining ownership and data from each customer transaction.
