Tue 5th Jan 2016 | Football Stadiums & Facilities
Julie Tandy has taken the helm at Goodison Park, home to Everton Football Club, following an 18 month stint as General Manager at Huddersfield’s The John Smith’s Stadium.
In her new role, Julie will be responsible for managing hospitality, public stadium operations and conference and events and driving sales revenues at the stadium.
In a career spanning almost 20 years, Julie has held management roles with some of the UK’s most prestigious arts organisations, including front of house manager at the National Portrait Gallery and project manager at Sadler’s Wells Trust Ltd.
She also worked extensively within the leisure industry prior to joining the Sodexo team at The John Smith’s Stadium, which is home to Huddersfield Town Football Club and Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Club.
“I have loved working in a sporting environment,” said Julie, “and am delighted to be taking the reins at Goodison Park.
“The stadium holds a very special place in the hearts of Mersey-siders and of The Blues fans, the world over and I hope to build on its existing, excellent reputation as the ‘go to’ venue for corporate and social events.”
Natasha Carr, marketing manager at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, said: “Julie is a very strong commercial operator who, during her time at The John Smith’s Stadium, acquired a thorough understanding and appreciation of the opportunities stadia bring to the conference and events market.
“She will be an asset to Goodison Park and we wish her every success in her new role.”
The conference and event facilities at Huddersfield and Everton are managed by leading UK catering company Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events.
