Huynh Thi’s role is to organise and manage all private hires at the flagship Foyles bookshop on Charing Cross Road. She will report to Andy Quinn, head of events at Foyles, and Richard Shaw, manager of Leafi Café at Foyles.
Huynh Thi joins Foyles from AdSpect, where she was events and production manager. Previously she worked as events coordinator at Asia House.
The building, which opened in June 2014, has a purpose-built events space on level six that can be used as a 200-seat auditorium, workshop space, reception venue or meeting room. The Leafi café and public gallery space on level five are also available for private hire.
Andy Quinn, head of events at Foyles, said: "We're delighted to welcome Kim Huynh Thi to the Foyles events team. Kim brings with her considerable experience of providing a very high standard of service to companies who require private events & catering functions.
"This is an exciting new venture for Foyles and if you are an organisation seeking to host a conference, a drinks reception or an award ceremony, we look forward to meeting your needs at our award-winning flagship bookshop."
