A new sales manager has been appointed to lead the conference and events team at Newcastle’s St James’ Park. Vicki Neil, from Northumberland, has been recruited to the position by Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events.
Neil brings almost 20 years’ experience to her new role, joining from Carlsberg UK where she was sales development manager. She has also held marketing positions at North East-based hospitality group Vimac Leisure Ltd and Federation Brewery, Gateshead.
“Like Carlsberg, Sodexo is a global employer and the opportunities for innovation and sharing best practice really attracted me to the role,” said Neil. “I’m really looking forward to maintaining and growing existing business while attracting new business to the club, and I intend to hit the ground running.”
