Zhong Xu

CEO, Deliverect

As the CEO of Deliverect, which was founded in September 2018, Zhong is connecting food delivery platforms with restaurants’ POS systems. Deliverect is helping the hospitality industry by providing user-friendly and innovative software.

From the age of 17, Zhong started his first company, building websites for restaurants. This experience made his passion for mobile, SAAS, and cloud technologies even greater. Zhong graduated with an M.S. degree in software engineering (2009), after which he immediately started working for the start-up Siruna. After that, he worked as a senior engineer for EVS Broadcast, where he created mobile and cloud solutions for customers such as the LondonOlympics, UEFA, and BBC. After gaining experience in these companies, Zhong founded his first business in 2012, together with his co-founder Jan Hollez. This SaaS company, formerly called POSIOS, was acquired by Lightspeed in 2014. Zhong grew out to be the global director of hospitality at Lightspeed, a company that helps the hospitality industry with its platform and is available in over 100 countries.

“Our vision is all about connecting the restaurant with their customers—we are here to help restaurants achieve this mission. Our products make your life easy so that you can spend less on systems and do what you love. That philosophy runs through everything that we do.”
