St James’ Park stadium – home to Newcastle United Football Club and one of the city’s leading conference and event venues - has boosted its catering, events and hospitality team with two new signings.

Sean Brown becomes catering services director in a role that will see him head the Sodexo management team in delivering catering and events services at the venue.

He says he is a keen Newcastle United fan and brings more than 20 years’ experience to the position having held senior roles at hotels and conference venues across the UK, including five-star Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, which has been the setting for countless films including Goldfinger and Bridget Jones’ Diary.

Supporting him will be fellow new recruit Jenny McNamee who, in her new role as meetings and event sales manager, will oversee and develop the venue’s corporate and leisure business.

From Shotley Bridge in County Durham, she has worked extensively in sales and hospitality and will be tasked with driving new business to the stadium and increasing its event bookings.

Previously she has worked for a number of high- profile Tyneside leisure outlets and as sales coordinator at Sunderland AFC’s Stadium of Light venue.

The pair join an already established and experienced management team for Sodexo, which has been the stadium’s catering partner since 2008.

“St. James’ Park is not only one of the sports world’s most iconic stadia, but its hugely versatile event spaces make it a popular choice for everything from small meetings and private lunches to gala dinners, conferences and AGMs,” said venue and events marketing manager, Natasha Carr.

“Sean and Jenny both bring considerable skill and expertise to the team and will be invaluable in helping us build the business, while ensuring our corporate and leisure clients continue to receive the highest possible standard of service.”
