The team at the NEC in Birmingham are pleased to announce the appointment of Michelle Baldwin to head of events for the Midlands venue. The move comes as the business increases its event and operations team back to pre-pandemic levels. Formerly senior event manager for the NEC, Michelle has been with the group for 32 years. Michelle comments: "My affinity with the NEC runs deep, so I am extremely excited to be taking on this position. It is important we now fine-tune the work, to further enhance our event management and operational offer. This new team set up gives us the opportunity to do this." As well as introducing a new head of events, the number of senior event managers in the team has been increased from two to three. Gemma Ellis and Rachel Jennings have been promoted to join Julie Kimpton in these roles. In addition, three new event managers joined the business last month.
