A NEW regional sales manager is overseeing all operations across the North of England following a restructure at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events.
Leeds-based Jacqui Page has been promoted to the new role within the organisation’s Sports & Leisure division, as the company makes changes to the way in which its UK sales team will operate.
Jacqui joined Sodexo back in 2011, as sales and marketing manager for non-match day events at the Headingley Experience at Headingley Carnegie Stadium, home to Leeds Rhinos, Leeds Carnegie and Yorkshire Cricket Club.
Having previously worked a similar role at another stadium, and with a background in leisure, she has become a key player in Sodexo’s sales team and will now take her experience across the region.
In her new role, she will responsible for implementing Sodexo’s sales strategy at its various sites across the North of England, with venues including Headingley and St James’ Park, home of Newcastle United Football Club.
“I’m delighted to have been promoted to this new role of regional sales manager within Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, and I’m very excited about the future,” she said.
“My job will be to promote a high performing sales culture across the sales team here across the North of England, and I’m looking forward to getting involved with the motivation of other teams.
“After six years working at Headingley, I think I can take all of that experience and help drive the business forward. I’m thrilled that Sodexo has given me this opportunity and I’m confident I can help make a real difference moving forward.”
Jacqui’s appointment comes as part of a large restructure of Sodexo’s sales team, which has also created similar roles in the South of England along with Scotland and Northern Ireland.
