Stoddart, who left Banks Sadler after less than a year in the role of group sales director, will be responsible for the strategic direction, management and growth of the agency’s venue finding and events business.

Stoddart, who has more than 20 years of experience in the events industry with agencies including Imagination and Peak XV, said: "I can clearly see Capita Travel and Events’ energy and focus on bridging the gap between customers’ creative teams and procurement to deliver impactful meetings and events.

"We have the people talent to bring agility and creativity to experiential events and the knowledge and technology to reduce resources and costs involved in booking company owned office space and small meetings venues."

Paul Boyle, chief executive officer, Capita Travel and Events, added: "As our meetings and events business continues to grow, we have created a board position that reflects the importance of its continued success to our customers and our business. 

"As a people focussed professional with vast experience, Paul is ideally placed to help deliver our vision in meetings and events and position us as a leader this sector."

Last year, Capita Travel & Events made two further appointments to its board, with Chris Truss joining as director of consulting services and Steve Wilson as director of customer relations after an 18-year stint at Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT).
