Elior chief executive Tim Hammond will be in the spotlight at the next Arena face-to-face event this September.
Hammond, who took over the helm of French contract caterer Elior's UK operation from Michael Audis in January, will be interviewed by ITV's news anchor, Alastair Stewart.
Stewart will ask Hammond about his diverse career path, which includes four previous general management roles at Barchester Healthcare, TGI Friday's, and two Unilever businesses - European Laundry Care and Lever Egypt.
Hammond is also expected to discuss his philosophy for business and his plans for Elior UK.
The event will take place at London's Dorchester hotel on 23 September.
Karen Forrester, managing director of TGI Friday's, is the subject of today's Arena Lunch, held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightsbridge.
