The O2 has appointed Becci Thomson as business development manager in the corporate sales and events team.
Thomson joins the music and entertainment venue from Prince Philip House, part of the Harbour & Jones Events venue collection.
Holding the position of sales & marketing manager, Thomson was instrumental in growing the business from a relatively unknown venue to its current status as one of London’s most popular destinations for a range of events.
In her role as business development manager, Thomson will build relationships with new and existing corporate clients to promote The O2 as a versatile and exciting events venue.
Building on a successful 2014, The O2 is looking to utilise its multiple event spaces including The O2 arena, Building Six at The O2, The American Express Invites Lounge, The Piazza and The Open Quarter – two blank-canvass spaces – for corporate and business events throughout 2015 and beyond.
Steve Sayer, commercial director of The O2 said: “Becci is an experienced hospitality professional, with a wealth of experience in the events industry and a proven track record of meeting and exceeding targets, so we are delighted she will be joining us here at The O2. 2015 is set to be a very exciting year for us, and we know how important it is to source the best people in order to drive business growth.”
Commenting on her new appointment, Thomson added: “The O2 is not only one of London’s most iconic venues, but with its cutting edge facilities and diverse event spaces it has so much to offer the corporate sector, both in the UK and internationally. I’m thrilled to be joining such a great team and I’m looking forward to taking on this new challenge.”
