Aramark managing director of business and industry Dean Lindsay has been moved out of a high dependency ward as his recovery from a serious road accident continues.
Lindsay, who was promoted to his role last October after the departure of Simon Titchner, was involved in a road traffic accident in June when the motorbike he was riding was in collision with a car.
Lindsay, who lost his lower left leg in the incident, had been in intensive care at Chesterfield Royal Hospital in a high dependency ward following surgery.
However, he has now been transferred to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield to continue his recovery and receive further treatment.
Andrew Main, chief executive of Aramark UK, said: "Dean has made excellent progress, particularly in the past week."
Main said messages of support and good wishes received so far had been a huge help to Lindsay during such a difficult time.
Messages can be sent to: Mr Dean Lindsay, Huntsman 4, Northern General Hospital, Herries Road, Sheffield, South Yorkshire. S5 7AU.
