THE catering and events company behind some of the UK’s most prestigious venues has made a new appointment as part of a rolling restructure.
Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events has appointed Cecilia Lavin to the position of regional sales manager for the South of the England within its Sports & Leisure division, as part of changes to the way the company’s UK sales team will operate.
Cecilia, who brings a decade of sales experience to the role, most recently worked at Peyton Events - which Sodexo acquired last year – where she provided sales support and managed client relationships at a number of London venues, such as the National Gallery.
In her new role, she will be responsible for implementing Sodexo’s UK sales strategy at its sites across the South of England.
These include Brighton’s Amex Stadium, Knebworth House at Hertfordshire, The Apex and Athenaeum at Bury St Edmunds, The Crystal and other Peyton Events sites in London.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have secured this exciting role within Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, and I’m very excited about the future,” said Cecilia.
“My role is to promote a consistently high performing sales culture across the sales team, and I’m looking forward to getting really involved in helping motivate our teams.
“I’ve really enjoyed working at Sodexo over the last year and I’m delighted the company has given me this chance to show what I can do. I am confident we can all work together to help the business consolidate and expand.”
Cecilia will also work on additional sales activities across the South of England to support continuous growth and help increase awareness of the brand and its venues.
Her appointment comes as part of a big restructure of Sodexo’s sales team, which has also created similar roles in the North of England and in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
