Fortune has named Compass Group PLC, which operates Canteen Vending in the U.S., as one of the “World’s Most Admired Companies.” This marks the third consecutive year that Compass has made the magazine’s list.
“I am incredibly proud of this award,” said Compass Group North America chief executive Gary Green. “And while the recognition is wonderful, it is our great people who deserve the spotlight. They are the heart and soul of Compass Group.”
To determine the rankings, Fortune partnered with global organizational consulting firm Korn Ferry to survey thousands of executives, directors and analysts. The survey rated companies in their industries on nine criteria, including innovation, people management and long-term investment value.
Compass Group PLC is headquartered in Chertsey, England. Compass USA is based in Charlotte, NC, and is online at compass-usa.com.
