Independent caterer Bartlett Mitchell has appointed Katarina Goodwin to a newly created role of people and talent director.
Goodwin began her career in operations before moving to people and talent management. She joins the business from Principal Hayley Hotels, where she held the role of HR director for its London Cluster.
She will be responsible for all areas of the people and talent function, including all transactional HR, people experience activity, payroll and training.

Wendy Bartlett, founder of Bartlett Mitchell, said: “Our people in the BM family are the most important asset we have and something we cherish and respect.
“Appointing Katarina is about making sure we walk the talk of putting the team at the forefront of our business strategy and growth , which is vital for our foodie culture.”
