Imago boosts sales team for Olympic year

Imago, the hospitality and conferencing division of Loughborough University, has expanded its sales team with a number of new appointments in anticipation of a busy 2012 as it prepares to host Olympic teams from Great Britain and Japan.

Paul Cooper has joined as business development manager, while Nicola Wilson has been appointed coordination manager.

Cooper’s role will involve working to introduce imago to Europe by attending IMEX in Hamburg and EITBM in Barcelona, while Wilson will be responsible for controlling quality standards and liaising with Imago’s management and operation teams to deliver outstanding events for its clients.

Imago has also added new revenue manager, marketing executive and event management assistant roles.

Emma Boynton, sales and marketing manager at Imago, said: "The recession has hit the hospitality market hard and our response has been to make sure customer service levels remain consistently high. 2012 will be a big year for us with Burleigh Court celebrating its 21st year, the two Olympic teams using our facilities in addition to sustaining current business growth.
