Sodexo appoints new managing director for FM

25 February 2009

Neil Murray has been appointed as managing director for Sodexo's facilities management division in a newly created role. He will sit on the company's board.

He joins from the international facilities maintenance company GSH Group plc where, as managing director for the UK and Eire since 2005, Murray was responsible for a £200m revenue; providing a wide range of FM services to blue chip clients. He was recruited as part of a recent restructure where Sodexo's hard facilities management activity was brought together in one designated division. Murray will sit on the company's board, reporting to Yann Coleou, chief executive, Sodexo, UK and Ireland.

Murray began his career with GSH in 1998 working for the company in the UK, USA and Ireland. Prior to this, he worked for the ferry company Stena Line in Dublin.

Murray said: "I am delighted to be taking responsibility for such a key division of Sodexo's business at such an exciting time for the company. As a leading provider in the FM industry, the range of services Sodexo provides is already extremely diverse. I am keen to develop this further to ensure we continue to offer our clients competitive packages tailored to their individual needs."

Yann Coleou, chief executive, Sodexo, UK and Ireland said: "With more than 40 per cent of Sodexo's turnover now coming from non-food services, FM is a vital pillar of our business. I am confident that with Neil's experience and knowledge, Sodexo's reputation as a provider of cost effective FM services will continue to grow."
