Morag Freathy appointed managing director for B&I for Compass UK and Ireland

Compass Group UK and Ireland has appointed Morag Freathy as its managing director for business and industry as it looks to take on the high street.

Freathy most recently held the role of managing director for workplace caterer Eurest, having previously had positions at Prezzo, Pizza Hut and Whitbread.

She 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."
