It was both the end of the summer semester recently and the end of an era for staff from facilities management company, Sodexo, ahead of the University’s move to Chiswick Park in August. A goodbye party was held on campus for the remaining 28 facilities service staff who were leaving, celebrating the collective 279 years of service that the team has completed at the University.
Dean Morley, COO & Director of HR for Richmond American University London, commented, “On behalf of all the students, staff and faculty at Richmond, I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the Sodexo staff who have worked tirelessly at the University over the last few decades. Their enthusiasm and commitment to the University has played a vital role in our community, and we would like to wish them all the very best in the future.”
The Estates and Facilities team together with facilities management company, Sodexo, at Richmond have ensured that food from the University hasn’t gone to waste by completing a delivery to a local foodbank in the Richmond community.
Paul Beadle, Richmond Foodbank Manager, said, “We wanted to say a sincere thank you for the generous donation you delivered to our Centre today. This will make a huge difference both to our food bank guests and our guests who use our morning crisis drop-in. Thanks again.“
