Meet Karen: Regional Sales Development Manager

Karen heads up the team here at The Venue at the Royal Liver Building. A proud Liverpool local, Karen has strong ties to the historic building, after growing up nearby in Formby.

Karen started her work life aged 15 and brings with her plenty of experience in the hospitality industry. As well as a BA (Hons) in Events Management from the UK Centre for Events Management, Leeds Metropolitan University, Karen also achieved a First Class grade for her dissertation, written on Liverpool and the impact that the European Capital of Culture 2008 award had on the city and its legacy.

Following graduation, Karen relocated to London where she worked for hospitality giant Novus Leisure for over six years. Karen was Sales and Events Manager for a range of Novus Leisure venues, before spending two years as Corporate Sales and Events Manager for Tiger Tiger in Leeds.

In 2014 Karen returned to London to take on a new role in the Head Office of Novus Leisure as National Account Manager for Direct Corporate Business, before joining the team at the Royal Liver Building in 2015.

Karen said: “Working at The Venue at the Royal Liver Building is a dream for me and I’m delighted to have such an iconic venue in my portfolio. I’m also excited to be involved with Christmas Party activity at Aintree Racecourse where we will be delivering events for over 1,000 people per night. The role of Regional Sales Development Manager fulfils my aspirations to, in time, help to grow Concerto regionally across the North.”
