We are pleased to announce that Gray Dawes Group has appointed Lesley Tyler to the role of Head of Events Operations.

Lesley has over 25 years’ experience in the events industry, covering all elements of events from corporate hospitality, meetings, conferences and incentive travel and have worked for Sportsworld, Capita Travel & Events and most recently Reed & Mackay.

We asked Lesley some questions upon joining Gray Dawes, and this is what she had to say:

– What will your role entail at Gray Dawes?

“As Head of Events Operations, I will be managing the strategy of the Events Operations division to ensure our current and future clients receive the highest of service levels, and to bring structure to the teams across the UK. Especially important due to the exciting acquisitions GDG have made over the past few years. I will work with the SLT and Events team to deliver innovation, creativity and process to Events and continue to build the business.”

– What are you looking forward to about the new role at Gray Dawes?

“Working with an established and experienced team who manage a variety of events from Venue find, flight fulfilment to full onsite event logistics all over the world, making it bigger and better than ever.”

Suzanne Horner, our CEO at Gray Dawes Group said

“I have a long held passion to further enhance our corporate event management offering. We have spent the last few months restructuring our corporate events division and Lesley has been brought in to spearhead our operational delivery. She comes to us with a huge reputation and stellar CV and I look forward to working closely with her to drive forward this side of the Gray Dawes business.”

With our headquarters in Colchester, Essex, Gray Dawes also has four other sites in London, Leamington Spa, Cambridge and Amersham and has achieved significant growth, primarily through six acquisitions in the past four years, the most recent of which, Giles Travel Limited completed in November 2018.
