French foodservice firm Sodexo has appointed its chairman Sophie Bellon as the company’s CEO, a position she has held on an interim basis since 1 October 2021.
Bellon first joined Sodexo in 1994 and has held various leadership roles within the company, including CEO of the corporate services business unit for Sodexo France.
According to Sodexo’s board of directors, Bellon’s “in-depth knowledge of the activities of the group” was considered to be a major asset.
Bellon said: “I will continue to rely on the skills and diversity of the members of the board, as well as the commitment and expertise of the executive committee and our teams to accelerate Sodexo’s transformation and strengthen its competitiveness. The principles that will guide my actions will be loyalty to Sodexo’s values, entrepreneurial spirit, as well as efficiency and speed of execution. More than ever, I am committed to reinvigorating Sodexo’s growth path, which has been part of the group’s DNA since its creation.”
Headquartered in Paris, Sodexo offers end-to-end services to businesses and the public sector, including food services and catering, vending machines, micro markets and more.
