Meet our team


Candice Finn

Business Development Director

I arrived at Sodexo in early 2014 as business development director after a three-year spell with a competitor working in the business and industry sector.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into the independent school’s market and take great pleasure in establishing prosperous relationships with new schools, as well as building on the long-lasting partnerships we hold with existing clients.

Independents by Sodexo pride themselves on delivering insight led food offers, tailored to the needs of each individual school. By listening to our clients and prospects we work together to deliver mutually beneficial catering solutions, designed to positively influence the health and wellbeing of the entire school community.

Prior to venturing into the catering industry, I spent six years in business development within the facilities management sector, having cut my teeth in newspaper and directory advertising sales following university. 

Having achieved a 2:1 Business Studies degree at Plymouth University, I spent a year travelling Australia, Indonesia and the Far East where I discovered my love of the outdoors and extreme sports. I have to date completed one 14,000ft skydive, eight bungee jumps and over fifty scuba-dives across the world.

My greatest achievement to date is marrying my wonderful husband and giving birth to our first child, with another addition to our family currently on the way.

My favourite things are:

  • My family
  • Scuba diving in warm waters
  • Skiing
  • Eating delicious seafood
  • Drinking good wine
