This is due to the retirement of Michael Sharp, managing director of Central Hall Westminster, and a prior member of The Westminster Collection’s board.Central Hall Westminster remain in membership of TWC.
These new details were officially ratified at The Westminster Collection Board Meeting on 29th July, at which two other board member changes also came into immediate effect. Wendy Greenhalgh, director of sales and marketing at One Great George Street, has been appointed director, whilst Nigel Collett, operations director at One Wimpole Street, and already a member of the board, has taken the position of company secretary.
Wendy Greenhalgh, director of sales and marketing at One Great George Street ~ London Media Centre for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games commented: “The City of Westminster attracts £22 billion in visitor expenditure per year and the Westminster Collection Venues are located amongst the most prestigious areas of prime real estate in the world . Westminster and the South Bank areas are ever increasing in popularity, following the Royal Wedding and President Obama’s visit this year. The outlook for Westminster venues in 2012 is even better with direct travel links to the Olympic Park from Westminster tube station, the location of the Hyde Park Festival Live Site and, last but not least, the blue-ribbon Beach Volley Ball events taking place in Horse Guards Parade. I am honoured to be joining the Westminster Collection board and very much looking forward to contributing to the collective’s continued success at such an exciting time for London.”
Nigel Collett operation director at One Wimpole Street is equally proud of his new position within the board, commenting: Business tourism has an estimated worth of £3.2 billion - a highly valuable income generator for London’s economy. At One Wimpole Street we have always been keen to align ourselves strongly with The Westminster Collection to promote the importance of business tourism and the benefits of belonging to a marketing collective. I am very pleased that the new office will be registered at our address and that I have been selected as Company Secretary. It is a great achievement both for me personally, and for our venue.”
René Dee, chief executive of The Westminster Collection says: “I am delighted to announce the change in our registered and administrative office details, as well as to welcome Wendy to the board and congratulate Nigel on his new appointment. We are very much looking forward to their input.”
