The conference and arts venue has promoted Oliver Hargreaves to the position of business development manager, while former intern Nia Edwards joins the team on a permanent basis as business events executive.
Hargreaves joined the Barbican in 2010 as an account executive, having gained a degree in events management with marketing management from the University of Gloucestershire. In his new role, he will focus on the development of corporate accounts, associations, event organisers and proactive sales within the conference and event markets.
Edwards joined the team as a business events and sales intern earlier this year and has now taken up a full time role.
Samme Allen, head of sales for Barbican business events, said: "Our strategy for growth has been paying dividends. Oliver’s promotion comes at a key time when the Barbican is launching new spaces and initiatives. His knowledge and experience of the centre will ensure we continue to develop new business in our target areas.
"Nia has also been a real benefit to the team, her energy and enthusiasm has been commented on by a host of clients and we are delighted she is joining as a full time member of the team."
