Leith's appoints new GM for EC&O

Leith’s, the conference and banqueting specialists of Compass Group and catering partner for EC&O Venues, has appointed Jane Govey as general manager for the catering operation at Earls Court and Olympia. Govey’s key priorities are to ensure that the food and beverage function at the venues continues to run efficiently and inspire the team to strive for higher success.

The move comes on the back of Leith's recent gold award for Best Food and Beverage Supplier at the 2007 Meeting & Incentive Travel Awards. Andy Hardy, operations director for Leith’s, commented: “The award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our catering team and we look forward to continued success at Earls Court and Olympia with Jane on board.”

EC&O Venues has been working in partnership with Leith’s for four years to develop a service that delivers outstanding quality and value to customers, and the M&IT Award reflects Leith’s dedication to customer service and its continuous commitment to menu development.

The caterer was responsible for serving the 4,500 stars, celebrities and guests at this year’s BRIT Awards on 14 February. This amazing feat caused a shortage of guinea fowl in France once Leith’s had placed its order, used enough glasses to reach 14 times the height of Canary Wharf tower, required staff to lay 5,500 sqm of table linen – enough to cloth up the entire Olympia National Hall – and served the equivalent of 200 barrels of wine and water!
