Sodexo Names New Schools Unit Head

Sodexo has appointed Stephen Dunmore president of its School Services Division. Dunmore, who moves to the role after serving as division vice president for Facilities Solutions in Sodexo's Health Care Market unit, succeeds Lorna Donatone, who was promoted to company COO and president of the Education Market in February.

In his new role with School Services, Dunmore will oversee operations and strategic growth for Sodexo at public school districts in the United States. The School Services Division serves 2.8 million school meals daily at more than 470 school districts across the country.

"Steve's diverse background and proven leadership will help us think in new ways about the opportunities we have to expand and grow," says Donatone. "As we strive to provide comprehensive service solutions for our clients, his background leading companies in various industries related to Sodexo's business, and his superior management experience will be instrumental in meeting our strategic goals."
