US-based hospitality provider Centerplate has appointed Simon Pile as director of new business partnerships for its business in Europe.

Trained as a chef, Pile joins the caterer, which operates at convention centres, sports stadia and heritage venues, with more than 20 years' experience.

In his new role, Pile is tasked with partnering with clients and prospective clients in developing guest experience and business building strategies.
