Venners, a hospitality industry stocktaking and audit supplier, has recently said goodbye to its Business Development Director. David Fitzgerald’s departure, has led the company to completely restructure its sales and marketing departments by appointing two separate Heads of Departments.
Following David Fitzgerald’s decision to leave the industry and start his own Public Service consultancy firm in the city, Venners has initiated opportunities for furthering its growth. Two of Venners top performers, Tony D’Acanto and Tom East, will now be heading up the Commercial Partnerships and Marketing departments respectively.
Tony D’Acanto has worked with the company for four years and will be recruiting new representatives to assist him as he performs his role as Head of Commercial Partnerships. Venners has long partnered with hotels, pubs, restaurants and others in the hospitality industry by identifying necessary losses and eliminating them through operational controls.
Tom East, who has worked closely with David Fitzgerald for the last five years, was selected as the perfect candidate to continue building on the legacy David has left. Tom will be taking up the baton as Head of Marketing to ensure the department continues to deliver success. He will be supported by a full-time Marketing Executive, Elyske van der Pol, and is already working on a refined marketing strategy.
Trevor Heyburn, MD of Venners said, “It is incredibly exciting to see the company thrive and expand as much as it has done these last years. Although we are sad to see David go, the restructure has meant that members of the team were recognised for the invaluable success they have already achieved for the company.”
