Sara Edwards brings HR to the boardroom table at Orient Express Worldwide

Slowly but surely, the HR function is changing, moving from an administrative function to a strategic operation, and every time a global business realises this, the whole industry takes a step forward.

Sara Edwards, formerly director of HR worldwide at the company, has been promoted to vice president, human resources and will attend board meeting and group executive meetings, making sure plans for innovations around its people are included in the business's most senior strategic discussions.
