Compass Group UK & Ireland has announced the appointment of Morag Freathy as the managing director for business and industry.

Compass Group UK and Ireland is a food and support services provider that operates in 15,000 locations. The business and industry division at Compass is responsible for Eurest and 14Forty, the workplace catering businesses.

Previously Freathy was the managing director for Eurest between 2017 and 2019. She has also worked for high street brands including The Prezzo Group, Pizza Hut and Whitbread Restaurants.

Freathy said: “Workplace culture is changing and with it comes the need for greater flexibility and innovation. 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.

“This challenge drives us to think more dynamically and my focus for our B&I business will be on ensuring 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. I’m looking forward to sharing our stories in the coming months.”

Chris Garside, managing director Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “It’s great to welcome Morag to the executive leadership team at this important time for the B&I business.

“Workplace catering is changing at a rapid pace and Morag’s consumer experience and focus will help us to consistently deliver what our customers want – great tasting food at reasonable prices, with the very best service.”
