Petela has been at Corporate Events for seven years, starting out as junior event manager working across multiple brands on a variety of events. Her new role will add the responsibility of the account management and relationship development of one of the company’s longest standing clients.

"I’m excited to have been given the opportunity to take on a more strategic role within the agency. I am lucky to have such great clients and this new role will allow we to spend more dedicated time ensuring we continue to exceed their expectations," said Petela.
