Peyton Events, catering partner at the Imperial War Museum (IWM) London, has appointed Laura Fitzgerald to head of the events team at the London visitor attraction.

Fitzgerald started her career at The Savoy as a member of the banqueting and event team, and is now tasked with building IWM London’s corporate client base. IWM London, which tells the story of those whose lives have been shaped by conflict, from the First World War to the present day, through permanent and temporary exhibitions, has event spaces for a range of different events.

Jane Murphy, marketing manager at Peyton Events, commented: “Laura not only became, quite rapidly, a valued member of the team but she also showed that extra initiative and ability that we look for when making senior appointment. This promises to be a very special year for IWM as we will unveil our new outdoor event space and we are confident Laura will be instrumental in introducing it to corporate clients and event organisers throughout London and beyond.”
