Margot Slattery, the president of Sodexo Ireland, has been named among the Top 100 influential LGBT business leaders for the third consecutive year.
She was listed as number 61 on this year's OUTstanding & Financial Times Top LGBT Executive list.
Earlier this year, Slattery was instrumental in launching the Sodexo UK & Ireland Pride employee network group, aimed to make LGBT issues much more visible for the organisation's 34,000 employees.
Outside Sodexo, she is a board member of GLEN (the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network) in Ireland. She was Senior Leader of the Year at GLEN's inaugural Workplace Equality Index Awards in 2015 and Trailblazer Award winner at the WXN 2016 Most Powerful Women in Ireland Awards.
She recently spoke to 4,000 people at the Out and Equal Workplace Summit, which took place in Florida earlier this month.
Slattery said: "I'm honoured to be included in the Outstanding Top 100 for the third consecutive year.
"Visible role models are crucial in creating an inclusive workplace where everyone can achieve their full potential.
"By launching our Pride employee network group this year we hope to identify more role models and allies to contribute towards our business success."
Other hospitality executives to be named on the list included Jonathan Mildenhall, chief marketing officer of Airbnb, who ranked as number 7 and John Kerslake, operations director for Costa, who was number 78.
Gigi Chao, executive vice chairman of Cheuk Nang Holdings, headlined this year's Top 100 LGBT leaders, with Lloyd's of London CEO Inga Beale second and Qantas CEO Alan Joyce third.
