A LEADING catering and events company has boosted its team with the appointment of a new sales and events co-ordinator.
Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, which manages the conference and banqueting facilities for Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, has recently appointed Israh Bhatti to the role.
In her new position, Israh is tasked with co-ordinating and managing a wide variety of events within the organisation’s venues. These include Newcastle’s Discovery Museum, Laing Art Gallery and Great North Museum: Hancock.
“I am thrilled to be able to work within such spectacular locations as these wonderful Newcastle museums,” she said.
“They are so versatile and can be used for so many different events. Museums are no longer just places you visit during the day. They are now among the best locations for corporate events, parties and weddings and I am thrilled to be part of such an exciting team.”
Israh, who graduated from the University of Sunderland with a first class Honours degree in Event Management, comes to Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events with a wealth of previous experience.
She previously worked as events and programming officer at South Tyneside Council and more recently as sales advisor at Wed2B.
She also has a strong background in wedding organisation, including English, Pakistani and Bengali ceremonies and now she is getting the chance to put these skills to the test in exciting venues.
“We are very pleased to have Israh as our newest member of the team,” said Laura Steel, manager for Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events.
“Her background in weddings and event organisation is very impressive and she has already brought lots of exciting new ideas to the team. Her enthusiasm and experience will be a great asset to us going forward.”
