Management reshuffle at London venue the Brewery after Maria Duddin (pictured) quit her role as managing director following four years in the job.
Duddin, who spent 11 years at the Chiswell Street business, left in November to launch a new PR and events business in her home town of Newcastle.
The Brewery has since announced a restructure of its management team, led by the promotion of commercial director Colin Arthurs to chief executive. Tom Gore has been promoted to executive chef, Simon Lockwood to creative director and Mark Armstrong to facilities director.
Wendy Glendinning-Pews takes over as HR and procurement director, Toby Heelis as marketing director and Stuart Nathan has been named finance director.
The shake-up comes 11 months after the Brewery was sold by Earls Court and Olympia (EC&O) Venues.
Its parent company Capital and Counties (CapCo) sold its interest in the Brewery on 9 February for a consideration of £2m, deferred for up to 10 years with minimum payments of £200,000 per annum. The identity of the new owner was not disclosed.
Commenting on her move, Duddin said: I've had an amazing experience with great career progression running a hugely successful team at a venue that will always hold many fond memories. For me however, now is the right time to move on.
"I have overseen the move away from EC&O Venues ownership and I cannot wait to embark on the next phase of my career."
