Sodexo sales team strengthened with new UK regional managers

Sodexo has appointed three new Regional Sales Managers to its Sports & Leisure division, as part of the restructure of its UK sales team, announced earlier this year.

Kate Nicholl, Cecilia Lavin and Jacqui Page (pictured) are all existing members of staff at the specialist catering and events company. In their new roles, they’ll be responsible for venues in their respective areas: Scotland and Northern Ireland, the South and the North of England.

Amanda Brown, UK Sales Director for Sodexo Sports & Leisure, said that the restructuring of the sales team reflects part of the sales strategy to drive organic growth in the conference and events side of the business right across the UK.

Brown continued, “Our three new regional managers will dramatically improve the sales ‘muscle’ of our teams delivering events at the prestigious venues we work with across the country. We work in a high-performance environment, so our clients will benefit from our increased capacity to deliver first-class experiences for them. We’re a company that recognises and invests in talent, so I’m especially pleased that Kate, Cecilia and Jacqui have been promoted from within the business to these important new roles.”

Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events delivers corporate hospitality and event management services at many well-known venues including Knebworth House, Newcastle United Football Club and The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, as well as the Peyton & Byrne offering across its heritage collection in London at venues such as the Royal Academy and the National Gallery.

The announcement of these new appointments comes shortly after Sodexo’s recent acquisition of Centreplate, which provides food and hospitality services at sports, convention and entertainment venues in the United States and the UK. This expansion will continue to evolve the offering of Sodexo’s Sports & Leisure division.
