Donna joined the NEC Group in February 2013 as Sales & Sponsorship Manager. Later that year she joined the ICC Sales Team as a Senior Account Manager, and in 2015 was promoted to Account Director. Two further promotions followed over the next five years as Donna was made Sales Director of the ICC and Vox in 2018 before becoming NEC Group Conventions Sales Director in 2020.
Donna has amassed great experience of the Group’s conventions business through her positions, and has been instrumental in shaping the corporate and agency business across the ICC and Vox. She was also heavily involved in the sales operation of the newly built Vox in 2015, taking on responsibility of the Vox Sales Team, restructuring appropriately and implementing new processes and strategy. These efforts, and the consequent success of the venues business, have led to Donna’s rise through Group sales management.
Before joining the NEC Group, Donna worked within local radio, being responsible for sponsorship & partnership for regional corporate and local authority accounts whilst managing the sales team and overseeing the sales strategy.
