Elior UK, the contract catering and services provider, has announced the appointment of Julia Edmonds to the group’s board of directors.
In her role as corporate business development director, Edmonds will be responsible for the sales development of the UK arm, delivering a development strategy across all of the group’s market sectors.
Edmonds provides the role with over 11 years of experience as managing director at the Elior-owned Lexington Catering.
Following her move, she will continue to serve as non-executive chair at Lexington to ensure the group “continues to benefit” from her “extensive experience”.
Edmonds said: “Becoming part of the Elior family back in 2014 gave Lexington the scale and additional resources to achieve continued security and innovation for clients and opportunities for the team.
“I am really looking forward to stepping up into this role at a time when the ‘new normal’ starts to emerge and I welcome the opportunity to be able to support the strategic objectives of the Elior UK business and our clients on an exciting journey of innovation and growth.”
Catherine Roe, chief executive at Elior UK, added: “We have worked hard to ensure we have the right blend of leadership, experience and expertise in all areas of the business.
“Julia will bring immense value to the leadership team and will play a vital role in delivering impact to our clients and business growth.”
