Victoria Warehouse grows team with two new recruits
Victoria Warehouse in Manchester has announced two new members to its sales team as the venue continues its expansion project. Amy Taylor and Ellie McNulty have joined the Victoria Warehouse team as Project Coordinator and Sales Coordinator respectively.
Amy has experience working with purpose-built venues and hotels and in her new role will oversee all of the main event spaces. Once a contract has been agreed upon with the sales managers, Amy will take care of the client and their team until the date of the event.
“I am really looking forward to working in a venue that has a reputation for being able to host any kind of event. The venue’s blank canvas aesthetic really allows for flexibility and creativity and I’m excited to help clients achieve their creative briefs.
“Hosting a boxing match one night, followed by a corporate conference and gala dinner, and a Halloween party with zombie maze all in the space of a few weeks will certainly keep me on my toes!”
Prior to joining Victoria Warehouse, Ellie McNulty was working as a venue finder at an event production agency. She has previously worked across all sectors on a wide variety of briefs.
Ellie will be looking after one of Victoria Warehouse’s new event spaces, The Bays, which was launched earlier this month and offers competitive rates for smaller pieces of business.
Ellie will also be responsible for the venue’s new boardroom. Although often thought of as a large capacity events space, Victoria Warehouse can also cater for small groups and the boardroom is the perfect space for meetings, presentations and business lunches.
Ellie says: “The story behind the venue is amazing and it’s great to work somewhere with such an important history to it. Victoria Warehouse has hosted events for some incredible corporate clients. I can’t wait to get started and bring some big business to Manchester.”
James Cohen, owner of Victoria Warehouse, adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Amy and Ellie to the Victoria Warehouse team. We have an exciting few years ahead of us with the launch of the new event spaces and we are confident 2015 will end as a year of transformation and achievement for Victoria Warehouse.”
The expansion project at Victoria Warehouse will include a new basement event space and an extension to the onsite hotel to provide 400 additional rooms by 2017.
