The new roles at Conference Care are in response to company growth, with further recruitment ongoing in the operations department.

Krishan Pankhania joins the company as new business manager and Sally McNamara has been appointed to the role of business development manager.

The sales team has been further strengthened by Sarah Huckerby’s appointment as account development manager, following her success in development of key client relationships. Sofia Walker has also been appointed to the role of sales executive, in a move from the operations department.

Pankhania brings with him a wealth of industry experience from both venue and agency perspectives and will be instrumental in identifying new business opportunities. McNamara will grow new client relationships under the leadership of head of sales Lynne Mulgrew.

Louise Lowe, sales director of Conference Care, said: "The creation of these new positions will ensure we achieve sustainable growth while maintaining the excellent personal service we provide. Our client portfolio continues to go from strength to strength, so it is essential we recruite the most talented and experienced staff. I am delighted too that investment and training of our team has allowed us to promote from within for some roles."

Conference Care moved to new larger premises earlier this year after outgrowing their three previous sites.
