Ex-Lanyon strategic account director Tim Clark (pictured, right) has joined Bournemouth-based venuedirectory.com as strategic development director.
He joins the board of the venue-finder, having also done consultancy work for the company.
Clark joined Velvet Software as managing director back in 2005. The company was acquired by Passkey in 2011, and Passkey was subsequently acquired by Lanyon in 2013.
Venuedirectory.com MD Michael Begley said: “I had known Tim through the industry for many years and following an opportune meeting last year we agreed it was time for us to work together. I am really looking forward to working with him on the new developments pipeline.
Begley took over the helm at venuedirectory.com from founder Richard Parkin in 2008. The company last year handled 400,000 meeting and event transactions on behalf of its clients.
Clark said he was looking forward to “exploring new challenges with latest technology to grow the business”.
Venuedirectory.com has 36 full-time employees and its core product is the GRATIS software booking solution for meeting planners.
Other company products include the API solutions for venue data, white label versions of their own venue-finding site and their on-premises software solution Events500.
