Compass makes new senior appointments

Compass Group has made eight appointments to the senior management teams across its business and industry (B&I) and health, education, defence and government (HEDG) sectors.

The new teams will drive the company's overall strategy to simplify its business, according to Ian El-Mokadem, group managing director for Compass Group UK & Ireland.

"It is critical that we have the right people in place to implement our new strategic direction most effectively," he said.

"The new teams will play key roles in achieving our Compass-wide goals to have great people, providing great service to customers and in turn, ensuring great results for our clients and for our business."

Five business directors will report to B&I managing director, Graham Sims from 1 October.

Peter Bruce, who currently manages Compass' offshore activities for ESS UK, takes on additional responsibility for all other B&I contracts in Scotland and northern England, and Andy Harris becomes business director for the south. Mike Malloy remains in Ireland, with responsibility for all contracts in the north and the Republic.

Caron Naylor, currently an operations director within B&I, is promoted to the role of business director, with responsibility for all client accounts in the east of England. Andy Barry moves from finance director within Compass' HEDG sector, to oversee B&I activities in the west of England.

Current B&I executive member, Mike Green will take responsibility for driving best practice across the sector in a newly created role as business excellence director. Green's team will focus on supporting innovation and sharing best practice in contract catering, retail grab and go and support services across the B&I business.

Within the Compass HEDG team, there are two newly defined roles reporting to sector managing director, Ian Sarson.

They are: Steve Cenci, who takes up the new role of business director, care & healthcare, after five years as a senior manager within Medirest and Tony Byrne, previously managing director for government services, who takes on additional responsibility for Compass' education business.

Education will continue to operate under the brand names Scolarest (for primary and secondary schools, and student services) and Chartwells (independent day and boarding schools).
