Center Parcs has strengthened its corporate events team at Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire by making Kelvin Hayward conference & events manager and Catherine Mansfield event coordinator.
Hayward has a wealth of experience in the management of conferences and events from previous roles at 5-star hotels such as Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa. He joined Center Parcs as head of department for the operations team in The Venue at Woburn Forest in 2015 and progressed to village duty manager a year later.
"As part of my new role, I will be coordinating all corporate events, from meetings and away days to product launches and gala dinners," said Hayward. "I love delivering exciting corporate guest experiences here at Center Parcs and I’m looking forward leading the team in doing so."
Mansfield initially joined Center Parcs as part of the Events and Conferencing team and quickly demonstrated valuable leadership skills, resulting in her moving to an assistant manager role, before her promotion to event coordinator.
"As event coordinator I am the first point of contact for corporate clients to organise the details of their stay," said Mansfield. "That's what I really love about the job, as I’ve always enjoyed interacting with clients to ensure their time at Center Parcs is a memorable experience."
