Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events has appointed Stephanie Lee to the new role of sales and revenue manager at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE).
The position has been created following Sodexo's recent success in extending its contract at RBGE in a deal worth £21m.
Lee previously worked as a sales executive at the Radisson Blu in Edinburgh before joining Sodexo five years ago as national account executive.
In her new role she will be responsible for increasing sales and managing a variety of events at the venue including conferences, product launches, corporate meetings and dinners.
Amanda Brown, UK sales development director, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, said: "Stephanie has built some really strong relationships in the conference and events market and not only has extensive and relevant experience, but is passionate about raising the profile of the Gardens as a top class meetings and events space.
"We are looking forward to an exciting year and are already marketing the recently refurbished lecture theatre for use from February 2016."
