Arena welcomed two new UK project managers, Francesca Heap and Nick Wright, to their expanding team in April 2019. The company is investing in new talent to look after their high-profile clients that include the PGA European Tour, the AELTC (Wimbledon Championships), and Historic Royal Palaces.
Francesca Heap joins Arena with 15 years event and project management experience working on well-known sporting events, exhibitions, and air shows including Goodwood, Cheltenham Racecourse, Royal Ascot, The Open and the Royal International Air Tattoo. Francesca joins from Mar-Key Group where she was in a Project Manager role. Nick Wright brings a wealth of project management experience, joining from Cancer Research UK. Nick is also familiar with Arena and their Mass Participation team who provide the event equipment for the Cancer Research UK events.
Chris Morris, Arena UK & Europe CEO comments:
“We’re excited to have Francesca and Nick join our team. Francesca and Nick both have experience working on established and complex events and will bring exciting new ideas to Arena. Investing in people is integral to maintaining and developing our service to our customers. As we grow we will continue to deliver the Arena Standard to our clients, without compromise.”
With a new UK senior executive team in place, and a busy Summer season ahead, Arena is not slowing down anytime soon. Upcoming UK events include the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Fleetwood Mac Concerts, Fever-Tree Championships, the Epsom Derby, and the Cricket World Cup to name a few.
