NeighborFavor, which operates Favor, Wednesday announced Jag Bath as its new Chief Executive Officer and President.

The Austin-based startup has been expanding quickly and recently entered the Canadian market. Bath has served on Favor’s board since May.

Bath previously worked as senior vice president of product at RetailMeNot, an Austin-based coupon retailing site. Before that he worked at luxury retailer Gilt Groupe and WeightWatchers.com.

“Having been a Favor customer from the very first day of its launch, I’ve been a fan for some time now,” Bath said in a news release. “Favor’s superior customer service and proprietary technology nicely lay the foundation for future growth. I’m thrilled and honored to be joining the team and excited at the prospect of putting the service into the hands of more consumers and businesses.”

Bath takes over from Ben Doherty, Favor’s co-founder, who is taking on the role of Chief Operating Officer.

Favor, which launched its app-based delivery service in Austin in June of 2013 has grown significantly in the past few years. So far this year, the company reports it has made 600,000 deliveries, which is already more than tripled its total deliveries for 2014. The startup pledges to get anything a customer wants delivered to their door within an hour. It operates in 12 cities in the U.S. and Canada including Austin, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, Nashville, Fort Worth, San Antonio, San Marcos and Toronto. Favor has 50 employees and more than 3,000 contractors.

To date, Favor has raised $16.9 million in funding.
