Prestige Scotland appoints new director of sales at Hampden Park




 

Prestige Scotland, part of Sodexo and one of the UK’s largest event caterer and provider of corporate hospitality packages, today announced the appointment of Paul Hollywood as its director of sales at Hampden Park, Scotland’s national stadium.

 

Hollywood, from Cambuslang, will be responsible for developing the sales and business functions at the stadium - one of the premier conference and banqueting facilities in the country. 

 

Hollywood has extensive experience in sales and management, having spent the last ten years working for companies such as Safeway, Debenhams, World Duty Free (a division of BAA) and more recently at Hilton hotels. 

 

Whilst at Hilton Hotels, where he spent four years, Hollywood held the position of conference and event sales manager in Edinburgh Airport and latterly in Glasgow. At the Hilton Edinburgh, his role was to oversee the sales function for one of the largest conference facilities attached to a hotel in Scotland. 

 

Hollywood has a degree in business and retail management from Glasgow Caledonian University.

 

He said: “I am delighted to have joined the team at Prestige Scotland. One of the best aspects of my role will be the variety. Whilst it is a cliche, no day is ever the same. One day I could be meeting with clients to discuss a conference or event, and the next day I am discussing plans to welcome 60,000 fans to t

he stadium for the U2 or the Coldplay 

concert. It is truly a job like no other"
