Sodexo appoints Jeremy Alderton as new education MD

Foodservice firm Sodexo has appointed Jeremy Alderton as managing director for its independent education branch.

He will begin the post on 1 February.

Jane Bristow, managing director of Sodexo Education, said: "Jeremy brings with him a wealth of valuable experience in the education market. He has a strong craft background that is especially relevant for the newly-launched Independents by Sodexo food offer.

"I am confident Jeremy's business development and craft focus will prove to be a powerful combination."

Sodexo has a strong educational presence. Recent deals include an £15.7m deal with University College London and a five-year extension on an existing 60-year contract with independent school Wellington College, Berkshire.
