Maria Schuett Head of Marketing at Central Hall Westminster
Central Hall Westminster today announces the appointment of Maria Schuett to the position of Head of Marketing, a newly created role following unprecedented and substantial growth at the venue.
Maria Schuett joined Central Hall as Marketing Manager in 2011, a role in which her achievements included re-branding and positioning the venue as one of the UK’s leading conference centres, becoming the first London venue to launch a dedicated mobile website and winning 'Best Internet/Media Campaign of overseas business in China' at the China Outbound Tourism Research Institute Awards.
Schuett also developed the multi-award winning ‘Meet The Future’ campaign, a multi-faceted campaign that culminated in a dedicated event technology conference, helping the venue achieve a 53% increase in turnover in the 2013/14 financial year. Maria Schuett comments: “I am passionate about the Central Hall brand and my industry. I am grateful to be working with such a forward-thinking team and venue that can help to shape the industry’s journey into the future with a real educational drive to progress and facilitate change.”
Paul Southern, Managing Director at Central Hall Westminster, adds: “Maria’s enthusiasm and passion for her role is infectious and has played a big part in helping our venue achieve some of its best results on record. I’m delighted that we can recognise her achievements with this newly created role and look forward to seeing Maria continue to take the venue’s marketing in new, bold directions.”
