FreemanXP anticipates growth with office move


She brings eight years’ experience in talent development to the newly created role, and was most recently employed as learning & development project manager at Whitbread Restaurants.

Her key responsibilities will include identifying and implementing strategic learning initiatives to support talent development and business growth across the business, as well as developing partnerships with colleges and universities in the regions where Freeman has offices.

Meanwhile Steve Comar has been promoted to the executive team as director of operations. The new role is effective immediately, and Comar will work alongside the outgoing director of operations, David Pilinski, until the end of the year.

Anthony Floreano, managing director, Freeman in EMEA, said: "These are both very important appointments for the EMEA business, as Freeman looks to cement its position as the premium provider of brand experiences in the region, and establish itself as the number one place for attracting and growing talent in our industry."
