Central Hall Westminster today announces the appointment of two key members of staff to its events team.

Adrian Roberts MBE, joins Central Hall as Head of Facilities following the retirement of Karin Parkinson who spent 14 years working at the central London venue.

With a 24-year background in the Armed Forces, Adrian was one of the youngest in the country to be awarded an MBE for services to the British Army from his time in Kosovo and for charity work.

Before joining Central Hall, Adrian worked in facilities management for the education sector including St John’s College in Southsea, Downe House in Berkshire and the Royal Grammar School in Guildford.

Adrian’s responsibilities as Head of Facilities at Central Hall will include implementing the 10-year plan to further improve the venue’s facilities and equipment, reviewing the department’s expenditure and managing budgets for all facilities within the building, along with supervising the general maintenance. He will also advise on security and health and safety for events and for day-to-day usage of the building whilst liaising with external contractors and suppliers.

Adrian comments: “I’m delighted to be joining a very strong team at Central Hall and bring my experience both in the armed forces and in facilities management to contribute to the venue’s 10-year plan.”

Anna Glazebrook replaces Maria Schuett in the role of Head of Marketing, joining Central Hall from RSM (Royal Society of Medicine) where she was responsible for overseeing offline and digital marketing across all channels for 1 Wimpole Street, Chandos House and RSM Club facilities. 

Previously, she worked as Group Marketing Manager for A Curious Group of Hotels and as Marketing Manager at One Great George Street and Brasserie One. She was also Board Director and Marketing Committee Chairperson at the Westminster Collection for three years between 2011 and 2014.

Anna’s new role will see her developing a new marketing strategy for central London’s largest conference and events venue, overseeing the marketing function and managing her team and related suppliers.

Anna comments: “I am very excited to be working at this magnificent venue and am looking forward to the new opportunities this role brings. I plan to use my experience to build on the current success of Central Hall as a top events venue.”

Paul Southern, Managing Director at Central Hall Westminster, adds: “We are delighted to welcome both Adrian and Anna to Central Hall, both key appointments. We know they will contribute to building on the phenomenal success we have been enjoying over the last few years and bring lots of new ideas to our busy central London venue.”
