The winners of Lexington’s One Team Star Awards were announced at the team’s annual leadership conference, on Wednesday 18th January 2017.
The conference brought together over 230 leaders across Lexington and Elior’s City B&I team, where they shared stories about how they have helped clients reduce their impact on the environment, improve CSR initiatives and increase customer satisfaction. The team discussed how they continue to drive innovation and be the very best that they can be.
Ashley Lopez, Chief Executive Officer, at DOCASA – The Department Of Coffee And Social Affairs – gave an inspiring talk about their journey.
