Sodexo: Sophie Bellon Appointed Chairwoman of the Board

ry 26, 2016 Shareholders' Meeting, Sodexo's Board of
Directors will appoint Sophie Bellon as Chairwoman. She will succeed Pierre
Bellon, Sodexo's founder and Chairman, who will become Chairman Emeritus.

After graduating from EDHEC Business School, Sophie Bellon began her career in
1985 in the United States, first in the finance and then in the fashion
sectors. She returned to France in 1994 to join Sodexo, where she has taken
part in the landmark steps in the Group's growth, including major
acquisitions and international expansion during the 1990s, the Quality of
Life services offer and, more recently, the Group's Research, Development and
Innovation strategy. This experience has prepared her for her future role as
Chairwoman, which she sees as having two underlying goals: pursuing the
Group's record of innovation-led profitable growth while upholding its
mission and core values.

Sophie Bellon joined Sodexo's Board of Directors in 1989 and has been Vice
Chairwoman since November 29, 2013. She has also been a member of L'Oréal's
Board of Directors since April 2015.
