Sodexo has appointed Julie Ennis as the new CEO for its corporate services business in the UK and Ireland, effective 1 March.
It follows the expansion of current CEO David Bailey’s role to oversee Sodexo’s corporate services business in North America.
Ennis joined Sodexo in February 2019 as managing director for the company’s corporate services business in Ireland. She then assumed the role of country president from Margot Slattery in September 2019, following her appointment as global diversity and inclusion officer for Sodexo.
In her new role, Ennis will continue in her role of country president for Ireland and represent Sodexo’s corporate services business as a member of the UK and Ireland regional leadership committee.
Sodexo’s corporate services business delivers a wide range of workplace and food services to clients in predominantly the financial services, professional services, pharmaceutical and FMCG sectors.
Bailey said: “I am delighted to be handing over the leadership of the UK & Ireland business to Julie. Over the last year Julie has proved herself to be a strong leader with our teams in Ireland, she has set out a new strategy for our business there and has delivered strong results.”
