Sally Cabrini will join the support services and construction company from United Utilities on 15 January as director of transformation, IT and people.
Interserve chief executive Debbie White, said: “I am delighted to welcome Sally, who will bring her strong transformation, commercial and relationship building skills to support the transformation already underway at Interserve.”
Having filled a similar role at United Utilities, which she joined in 2007, Cabrini is currently a non-executive director at automotive retailer Lookers. Cabrini also has experience in consulting.
White added: “Sally is an experienced senior leader who has a strong track-record of getting the best out of people and technology.”
Earlier this month, Interserve announced that Bruce Melizan, who was in charge of the firm’s support services business, stepped down from the board as part of the firm’s ‘Fit for Growth’ strategy.
