Sodexo has made two new appointments to its executive team for its corporate services business. Andy Vaughan joins as business development director and Andrew Wilkinson takes up the role of strategy and marketing director.
Vaughan, having recently held the position of strategy and planning director at Sodexo some four years ago, now re-joins the business and will focus on continuing to grow Sodexo’s corporate services business in the UK and Ireland by building on the increasing number of existing integrated facilities management contracts it operates. Vaughan joins from Resource Group, where he had been managing director for the past four years.
Commenting on his new role, Vaughan said:
‘I’ve watched Sodexo closely over the last few years and I’m excited to re-join them as business development director. It’s clear there have been considerable changes at Sodexo over the last few years, the increase in technical expertise has significantly boosted our capability and firmly positioned us an integrated facilities management provider. The company’s sheer size and scale has obviously increased over recent years and it’s great to see some exciting developments with our global infrastructure and examples of where this is leading to enhanced value for our clients.’
Wilkinson takes up his new role as strategy and marketing director, having formerly been managing director of Sodexo’s Property Solutions arm. He will be tasked with ensuring the capability and quality of life services proposition continue to communicated to its key target markets, positioning Sodexo as the partner of choice when organisations are considering outsourcing or re-tendering their facilities management services.
Commenting on his appointment, Wilkinson said:
“I’m delighted to take up this position in our newly-formed corporate services strategy and marketing team and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead. There is increased demand for Sodexo’s integrated quality of life services and my team and I will be working to ensure that we have the innovative, market strategies in place to support a Sodexo offer which is both compelling and competitive.”
Neil Murray, managing director corporate services, said:
“To ensure we have a continued focus on the growth and development of our quality of life services, Andy and Andrew will be concentrating on turning this focus in to greater value for our existing contracts and new customers looking to outsource their facilities management services. I look forward to the seeing their efforts continue to drive demand for our integrated offer.”
