Transport for London (TfL) has recruited from its in-house team to replace director of compliance Gareth John, who left for Sodexo in January.
Andrea Clarke, who is currently manager of TfL’s commercial law team, will take up the post in May.
She will lead a 30-strong legal team and will report to general counsel Howard Carter.
John was director of compliance at TfL for four years. He left to take up the general counsel role at management services provider Sodexo, which has just appointed Eversheds as sole employment law adviser.
