Azita Shariati resigns from Sodexo


After 21 years with Sodexo, Azita Shariati has decided to pursue a new career opportunity as Group CEO for an international company in another industry sector. She continues in her current role until November 30, 2019.

During her more than 20 years at Sodexo, Azita Shariati has gone from frontline leadership to the top of the Nordics organization. Today she is President Sodexo Nordics, Country President Sodexo Sweden and CEO for Sodexo Healthcare Nordics.

Azita has helped to distinguish Sodexo’s brand in the Nordics. She has been praised for her inclusive leadership style and work on equality and diversity. She has engaged in several forums to talk about the importance of values in successful organizations – something which has resulted in many awards, including Sodexo being named Employer Branding Company of the Year in 2019, in Sweden.

– We are proud to play a role in developing great business and people leaders like Azita. We thank her for her commitment, leadership and enthusiasm and wish her every success in her new role, said Marc Plumart, CEO Sodexo Healthcare Worldwide.

– After 21 successful years with Sodexo, a company with great values, ethical principles and strong growth potential, it is time for me to take the next step in my career. I have got a fantastic opportunity to become the Group CEO for one of Europe’s leading veterinary care companies, says Azita Shariati.
