Casciola will oversee finance, accounting, financial planning and analysis, tax, internal audit and treasury. He is the company’s first CFO, joining at a time when the company is experiencing rapid growth.

Chicago, June 25 2018: Fooda, the leading provider of freshly served restaurant food at work, today announced the company hired Justin Casciola as the company’s first CFO. The executive recruiting engagement was conducted by Lucas Group.

“After a thorough search for a CFO, we’re very happy with our decision to bring Justin onboard,” states Fooda CEO Orazio Buzza. “Justin brings to the table deep financial experience and leadership which will support our growth.”

At Fooda, Casciola will oversee finance, accounting, financial planning and analysis, tax, internal audit and treasury.

“Fooda is experiencing surging growth and I am thrilled to be coming onboard at a time like this,” said Casciola. “Working with Orazio and the team, I’m enthusiastic to contribute my finance, strategic and leadership perspectives as the business continues on an exciting trajectory.”

Casciola has held senior accounting and finance leadership roles at a number of growth companies including VaaS, Inc. and Groupon, where he drove significant finance and accounting operational improvements, cultivated teamwork and provided strategic partnership and leadership within the businesses. Earlier in his career, he spent 13 years both domestically and abroad with Ernst and Young. Casciola holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Dayton.

Named one of the fastest growing companies by Crain’s and American Inno, Fooda is rapidly expanding into new markets. The company is currently in 17 cities across the US with plans to reach 25 within the next year.

“Over the past couple of years Fooda has surpassed the startup stage as we’ve reached important milestones related to revenue, headcount, enterprise products, and market expansion,” states Fooda Chief Sales Officer Alex Groesbeck. “As we continue with our current level of high growth, Justin will serve as an invaluable asset on our executive team”.

Fooda continues to strengthen its position as a market leader by further investing in technology and data science efforts.
