Based at Sodexo's London offices and reporting to finance director Aidan Connolly, John will be responsible for the management and direction of the company's legal team and affairs.
Connolly said: "We are delighted that someone with Gareth's talent and experience has joined us, I am sure he will be a major asset in tackling the challenges ahead for our business."
