Transport for London's (TfL) director of compliance Gareth John has left the company to take up the general counsel role at facilities management services provider Sodexo.
John will be in charge of Sodexo's UK and Ireland operations, heading a team of around six qualified lawyers.
It is understood that TfL will advertise to find a replacement for John in the coming months.
