Alex BeaumontContract Director
I joined Independents by Sodexo as contract director in December 2015, having previously worked for Sodexo in the Sports and Leisure segment for 10 years. Based at Wellington College in Berkshire, I head a team delivering student catering, hospitality, retail, domestic and logistics services to more than 1,000 students, in addition to the academic and non-teaching staff of the college.
The role is all about the people, listening to students, keeping up with current trends and inspiring a team of 300 to deliver incredible service to all our customers: the students, the staff and all who visit Wellington College.
In the wider Independents by Sodexo team, I coach some of our managers to achieve their potential and bring events and commercial expertise to support colleagues across the business.
I am married to Megan, an HR manager and we live with our son, Thomas, on the south coast where we enjoy stunning views of the Isle of Wight.
My favourite things are:
Exploring Australia – I try to visit every couple of years
Harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables grown at home
Sharing a jug of Pimms with friends and family
