CH&Co Group's specialist city caterer Lusso has appointed Sharon Linney as operations director to oversee a team of three operations managers as the business continues to grow.
Linney joins from school food specialist the Brookwood Partnership, where she held the same position.
She previously held operations director roles at Bartlett Mitchell and a social enterprise company after a 20-year career where she worked her way through the ranks at Aramark.
In her new role she will be responsible for a portfolio of Lusso's clients in the City and central London.
She said: "This is a very exciting time to be joining Lusso. It's a fantastic brand in a very strong position of growth and I'm thrilled to be part of the team to continue to develop the business and drive it forward.
"Being a smaller, unique business, supported by a great group, makes Lusso a very attractive proposition. It enables individuality to be retained and attention to be paid to what matters, doing the very best job possible for our clients and delivering continued excellence.
"I'm privileged to be joining a dynamic team where our skills and styles will complement each other and enable continued learning and development."
Paul Hurren, Lusso's managing director, added: "We're delighted to have Sharon on board as operations director. Lusso is currently in a period of significant growth and it's vital that we have the right team and resources in place to continue the growth curve, while ensuring we deliver on our promise of providing delicious, innovative and sustainable food, supported by excellent service.
"Sharon is a fantastic asset to the team and her experience and proven reputation for growing client relationships and retaining business will ensure we're well placed for continued success."
Lusso specialises in providing corporate fine dining and hospitality for media, law, accountancy, insurance and banking firms, primarily in London.
The firm recently announced it had secured £48.7m of new and retained business over the past 14 months.
