Center Parcs has appointed Daniel Whittemore to the position of Head of Corporate Sales.

As Head of Corporate Sales, Daniel will oversee the profitability within the division while leading the sales and marketing team to achieve corporate sales targets across all the Center Parcs locations.

Whittemore will play an essential role in continuing to strengthen the position of the Center Parcs brand within the meetings and events industry, overseeing future marketing development plans such as the launch of Center Parcs’ fifth village at Woburn Forest to the corporate market in 2014.

Before joining the Center Parcs team, Daniel Whittemore held the position of Sales Manager at Silverstone Circuits, where he managed a sales team responsible for corporate driving experiences, race day hospitality, conferencing and meetings, annual private boxes, product launches, tailor made events, track hire and testing for competition licence holders or racing teams.

Center Parcs has also further bolstered its Corporate Sales team with the recent appointment of Will Breen as Corporate Accounts Executive; he will be based at Center Parcs’ Head Office, overseeing sales, enquiries and events booked at Sherwood Forest. Will was previously an Events Co-ordinator at Off Limits Corporate Events.

Center Parcs is recognised as being a unique choice for corporate events and team building, with a prestigious client list including Ryman, Hewlett Packard and Gap. Center Parcs offers distinctive expertise in conferences and meetings, presenting solutions for everything from private board meetings to large conferences and gala dinners, as well as boasting a wide range of team building activities and accommodation onsite. The tranquil natural woodland settings provide motivating environments for delegates, as Center Parcs takes a naturally creative approach to business. 

Daniel Whittemore comments “It’s a privilege to join such a great team. Center Parcs has a fabulous reputation where the customer experience is key; this is a value I firmly believe in. The four venues, soon to be five with Woburn Forest, offer very unique destinations; marry this with competitively priced DDR rates and national reach, with close proximity to all major road and rail links, and you have a superb proposition for clients. ”
