Employing more than 34,000 people in the UK, Sodexo develops, manages and delivers a range of services designed to improve “quality of life” for clients and customers in the corporate services, defence, health, education, justice, energy, sports and leisure sectors.

Worldwide Sodexo operates in 80 countries and says it deals with 75 million customers each day.

Briefed to bolster the brand’s national PR presence, Havas PR will lead on a number of UK-specific initiatives, as well as manage local activations of global campaigns.

Its appointment comes as Sodexo consolidates its global PR support under the Havas umbrella, with Havas teams in the UK, France and USA working as a collective.

Claire Quansah, operations director of Havas PR UK, will lead the account.

She said: “Sodexo is a huge global operation which impacts on millions of people’s lives every day. From offices, airports and football stadiums to hospitals, schools, prisons and military bases, the breadth and scale of the business gives us some fantastic stories to tell.

“We are thrilled to be supporting Sodexo’s UK operations, as well as working with our Havas colleagues across the world to provide a seamless PR strategy.”
