Lohezic will manage all events that take place in CentrEd and provide clients with a single point of contact from enquiry stage through to delivery on the day.
She joins ExCeL from CCT Venues, where she was responsible for overseeing all events for two venues. In the past she has worked with Hilton and Accor.
James Rees, executive director of conferences and events at ExCeL, said: "With the launch of CentrEd at ExCeL, we are providing clients with something truly different. Whilst our reputation has been built on big [events], CentrEd has been specifically designed for events from 20 to 400 delegates.
"We've considered every aspect of the experience - from a tranquil, waterside setting to the latest technology and innovative menus. We are delighted that Delphine has joined the team. Her skills and experience will be of huge benefit as we establish CentrEd at ExCeL."
