Catherine Roe

Chief Executive Officer at Elior

Catherine is chief executive of Elior UK, one of the largest foodservice operators in the country and part of Elior Group – one of the world’s leading operators in contract catering and support services.  With more than 20 years’ experience in foodservice, her aim is to grow the UK business in a strong and ethical way, creating a positive, loyal culture and a team that’s focused on delivering a first class experience for clients and their customers.

Since Catherine’s appointment as CEO, she’s led several acquisitions: Lexington, Waterfall Catering Group (encompassing care specialist Caterplus and education specialist Taylor Shaw), and eastern regional caterer Edwards and Blake.  These carefully chosen companies have built upon Elior’s key areas of expertise and strengthened its position in the UK foodservice market.

In addition to her work at Elior, Catherine is chair of Women of the Year, an organisation which recognises the achievement of women from all walks of life.  She enjoys mentoring women in the industry, encouraging them to fulfil their potential. Catherine spent her earlier career at Sodexo, where she was purchasing director for the UK and Europe.  Prior to that she was at the Ladbroke Group and Hilton International.
