Leicestershire-based event and travel
business the Aspiration Group has appointed Silverstone’s former head of sales,
Amanda Macchi, to the role of group sales and marketing director.
Macchi, had been with Silverstone Circuits
for nearly two years, and brings considerable experience of the MICE sector.
She has previously worked as director of
sales at De Vere Hotels and director of sales and marketing at four-time Ryder
Cup venue, The Belfry.
The move will see her reunited with her
former Belfry colleague, Aspiration Group CEO Simon Wordsworth.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my two years at
Silverstone where I was privileged to work with some great people and to
broaden my experience at another world-famous venue. But the chance to work
with the team at The Aspiration Group – which has such an outstanding
reputation and track record – was too good to refuse,” she said.
The Aspiration Group specialises in golf
events, hospitality and conferences. Its clients include the England cricket
team, the Professional Cricketers Association, the Golf Foundation, Mitsubishi
and other blue chip companies.
