Pittodrie Score With New Sales Manager

Fri 31st Jan 2014 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Tonee Rota has taken up the role of sales manager at Pittodrie Stadium, the home to Aberdeen Football Club, bringing over seven years of experience working for some of the industry’s biggest names.

Originally from Auckland in New Zealand, Tonee decided to make the 11,000 miles journey after her partner, Joe Lawson, secured a position as outside centre on the Aberdeenshire RFC Team.

Tonee said: “Organising events has been a passion of mine for several years now and something I take great pride in doing.

“Since I started here with Sodexo Prestige I’ve been able to use my skills and experience in organising large scale events to the club’s advantage, helping grow the events and conferencing side of the business.

“To be part of the team here is an exciting challenge as we have a busy 2014 ahead of us. From weddings and corporate dinners to match day banqueting there is a lot of variety in the work we do, something I have a great deal of experience in.

“Now I just can’t wait to get hands on with all the upcoming events and use my creativity to the club’s advantage through my new role as sales manager.”

In her new role Tonee will deal with a wide variety of events for the club and concentrate on driving forward new business to the flexible venue.

With nine event rooms with space for 10-400 delegates and 12 syndicate boxes overlooking the pitch, Sodexo Prestige cater for everything from high level meetings and banqueting to training courses for the Aberdeen youth team.

Paul Quick, General Manager with Sodexo at Pittodrie, said: “We are delighted to announce Tonee Rota as the new Sodexo Prestige sales manager here at Pittodrie.

“Tonee has years of valuable experience under her belt and she brings a wealth of event organising knowledge to the team here. I’m looking forward to working closely with her in the future and seeing what new, innovative ideas she can bring to the table, helping develop Pittodrie’s profile as one of the north east’s leading conference and catering venues.”
