Olo has a new chief operating officer.

Nithya Das, the tech company's chief legal officer since 2019, has been promoted to the position, the company said Tuesday. She replaces Matt Tucker, Olo's president and COO, who will retire in March from the newly public company.

“I have been fortunate to have Nithya as a trusted advisor to me over these last two years, and I’m confident she will lead us through the next phase of Olo’s growth as our COO and CLO,” said Noah Glass, Olo founder and CEO, in a statement. “I asked Nithya to step into this role as she has a strong operating background and experience in building and scaling high-growth tech companies.” 

Before joining Olo, Das was chief legal officer and people officer at AppNexus, an advertising tech company. 

Tucker had been Olo's COO since 2013  and president since 2020. He helped the company scale, add restaurant partners and develop its core products and was a key part of its initial public offering in March. He will remain with the company as president until March 31 and then as an adviser through the end of the year. 

“I am extremely proud of our accomplishments during my tenure as President and COO, including the recent milestone of becoming a public company,” Tucker said in a statement. “I look forward to working alongside Noah, Nithya, and the Olo team to help ensure a seamless transition and supporting the company as an advisor.”

Olo provides online ordering and other software services for restaurants. It raised $450 million in its IPO and in its most recent quarter reported revenues of $37.4 million, an increase of 36% year over year.
