Compass Group UK & Ireland has appointed Morag Freathy as managing director of its business and industry division.
Freathy was formerly managing director for workplace caterer Eurest, also part of the Compass Group. She has also previously worked at the Prezzo Group, Pizza Hut and Whitbread Restaurants.
Freathy said that more flexibility and innovation was needed as workplace culture changed.
"Now more than ever, our offer needs to be able to compete with the high street as we see our consumers moving away from the traditional hot lunch and enjoying a grab-and-go option, often from outside the building," she said.
"This challenge drives us to think more dynamically and my focus for our B&I business will be on ensuring that we do just this - harnessing the skills and knowledge of our excellent teams to deliver the very best food and experience for our valued clients and consumers."
