Kate Swann

CEO SSP

The prominent retail executive Kate Swann is the CEO of SSP, the travel food group which encompasses Millie’s Cookies and Upper Crust among others. Having been the successful CEO of WH Smith for ten years, where she masterminded a dramatic improvement in the profitability of the retailer’s High Street Division and pioneered the expansion of its Travel Division, Swann was swiftly snapped up by SSP. At WH Smith, she transformed the company from a £72 million pre-tax loss in her first interim results in April 2004 to a £69 million profit in her last set of results in 2013. With her reputation as a money-saver and business reformer, Swann has huge power at SPP.
