Elior UK has appointed Mandy Davies as its new head of dietetics and nutrition.
She will be responsible for a comprehensive nutritional and dietetic service, working with teams across the business to ensure evidence-based practice works in conjunction with the best commercial outcomes.
A former sales and marketing director, Davies has extensive experience within the NHS and holds an MSc with distinction in clinical research from the University of Manchester, a BSc first class in nutrition and dietetics from the University of Chester, and a BSc in hospitality management and business from the University of Central Lancashire.
Davies said: “With my somewhat unusual background, my focus has always been fairly evenly split between commercial performance and customer care. Elior is hugely invested in the people it serves and cares for and I’m looking forward to being part of that.”
Carl Morris, sales, marketing and corporate communications director for Elior UK, added: “Improving people’s health and wellbeing by championing better food choices is a key part of the Elior business. With a background in hospitality, as well as clinical leadership experience in the NHS, Mandy is perfectly placed to help us develop concepts and environments that support good health and nutrition.”
