Sodexo has named Mark Bickford president of its Corporate Service Solutions unit that operates traditional dining services and vending for B&I clients nationwide. The move is part of an initiative to convert Corporate Services from a geographical to a business-based structure. Other units focus on various non-food-related services like facility management and security.
“Mark and his team are poised to drive growth in the Corporate Services Market, as well as continue to increase operational efficiencies that provide value to our clients,” says Michael Norris, COO and Market President for Corporate Service Solutions. “I am confident that his strong track record and personal commitment to serving our clients will lead progress and better align the organization with our strategic goals.”
Bickford joined Sodexo in 1985 and was most recently division vice president for the Eastern portion of the U.S. for the company's Corporate Services business and the portfolio of National Accounts.
