Event caterer Seasoned has appointed Heidi Hatfield as its new venue relationship manager, to build and nurture relationships with current and prospective venues.
Hatfield joins the company following a short break from the events industry after 12 years' experience in the sector.
She said: "I am delighted to be working for Seasoned, having worked with them previously at a number of venues. Venues are my passion and I am very excited to be working with some of the best venues in London."
Hatfield has previously worked as event manager at the National Science Learning Centre, a state-of-the-art facility based on the University of York campus, responsible for all commercial events from enquiry to completion.
Hatfield also had a 15-month stint as business development manager at London's Old Billingsgate, before she moved to Concerto to focus on its association business as well as strengthen relationships with Create catered venues.
During her time with the company, Create secured an exclusive catering contract with Xcite to cater at Landing Forty Two at the Leadenhall Building, which lead to Hatfield becoming the venue director and an integral part of the venue's launch.
Colin Sayers, managing partner of Seasoned, said: "Heidi has a stellar reputation in the industry and I am confident she will have a big impact on sales due to her extensive experience."
Seasoned caters at several venues across the capital and is part of Crown Partnership.
