They include Ellie Jones, who has joined as national account manager, Jennifer Willcox as business development manager at Elveden Forest, and Sophie McDonald, who has been appointed as events coordinator at Woburn Forest.

Jones joins Center Parcs from Alton Towers Resort where she was business development manager for three and a half years. Prior to this, she worked at PH Hotels and spent seven years with agency Zibrant. In her new role she will deal with all details of the event process including accommodation bookings and teambuilding activities.

Prior to joining Center Parcs, Willcox worked for Greene King as a buyer and was also responsible for organising staff events throughout the year. In her new role, she will be the key point of contact for corporate guests and will be responsible for actively increasing local contacts and maintaining relationships with current clients.

McDonald, who joins the team at Center Parcs’ newest Village Woburn Forest, previously worked for CWT Meetings and Events, managing events for a pharmaceutical client. As event coordinator, she will work closely with the venue team and business development manager based at Woburn, to understand client objectives and ensure all events at the Village run smoothly.
