Highland business leader to head ExecSpace’s Northern push

Edinburgh-based conference booking agent, ExecSpace, has appointed Highland Business Woman of 2013 finalist, Jess Atkinson (pictured), to lead its expansion drive into the North of Scotland.

Atkinson, previously Business Development Manager at Macdonald Aviemore Resort, will be the agency’s Regional Account Director based in Aberdeen.

Previously, Atkinson had spent 17 years with Moray Firth Radio, part of the Bauer Media Group (BMF), where she won the accolade of BMF’s top salesperson in Scotland.

Emma Little, Managing Director of ExecSpace said: “I am delighted that Jess has agreed to join ExecSpace to lead our offering in Aberdeen and the Highlands and islands. This is an important step for us, expanding ExecSpace’s footprint outside of the central belt where we began, into the North of Scotland and into Aberdeen which leads the way in Europe’s energy generation.”

Atkinson added that she was “thrilled” to be joining ExecSpace and foresaw “a huge opportunity to make a real impact on the conference and business accommodation market in Aberdeen and the North of Scotland”.

ExecSpace currently looks after 100 blue chip clients ranging from private companies to Stock Exchange listed businesses looking to host external events across the UK. It has annual revenues in excess of £5m.

In July, ExecSpace appointed Natalie Maynard as Regional Account Director for the West of Scotland.

Both senior appointments follow on from a major six-figure investment in the agency in May 2013 from Bradenham Partners.
