Paul Southern, managing director at Central Hall Westminster, commented: “We enjoyed a very successful year in 2016 and our plan is to build on this success by strengthening our team further through the creation of these new roles. Investing in staff is part of our long-term strategy as we expand into new markets, and improve the venue’s efficiency which ultimately saves money for our clients.”
