Sodexo expands its Executive Committee to pursue growth of its Quality of Life Services

Over the years Sodexo has built solid foundations and strong expertise in services specific to each client segment (including companies, schools, universities, hospitals etc.). This allows the Group to deliver ever more relevant and valued services for its clients and consumers.

In a services outsourcing market estimated today at some 50 times Group revenues, this expansion of the leadership team should enable Sodexo to pursue and leverage future growth opportunities.

This enlarged Group Executive Committee will now comprise 6 women and 8 men from 6 different countries, and will more fully represent Sodexo’s activities, as well as its truly international dimension.

One of the principal missions of the Group Executive Committee over the coming years will be to define and implement the next steps required to transform Sodexo from its current country-based structure into a truly global group organized by activity and by worldwide client segment.
