Telford International Centre has a new commercial director, Steve Simmons. The appointment follows the departure of Matthew Lambert who left earlier this year to set up an event management company.
Simmons has been at Telford for six months in the role of site financial controller with responsibility for the financial systems of the venue and its two on-site hotels.
“I’m very honoured to have been promoted, particularly after such a short time, and I am looking forward to the opportunities this new position will bring,” he says.
TIC chief executive, Tom Gray, says Simmons has proved himself in the short time he’s been with the venue.
“It has been a breath of fresh air to have someone from outside the industry to apply a different financial approach to what we do here at the centre,” he adds. “Steve very much likes the challenge of the live events industry and is enjoying the challenges that our industry brings.”
