Medilink Yorkshire and Humber has strengthened its Sheffield-based team with the appointments of Sarah Whittaker-Gilbey as Senior Events Co-ordinator and Ben Jacobs as PR Officer.
Sarah has more than 15 years experience of managing a range of events, while Ben joins fresh from graduating in Journalism Studies at the University of Sheffield earlier this year.
Sarah, who previously spent five years with Business Link before starting her own business, will support Medilink members in the delivery of a range of commercial events, as well as organising marquee events such as the Medilink Healthcare Business Awards being held at the Cutlers’ Hall in Sheffield, on November 29.
Ben will bolster the company’s well established PR department in delivering greater visibility for organisations across the sector while also supporting an increasing portfolio of digital and social media projects.
Kevin Kiely, Managing Director of Medilink Yorkshire and Humber, said: “Sarah and Ben are great additions to our growing team. Sarah is highly regarded in the business events sector and is an experienced dealmaker while Ben has great potential and will be able to add to his range of skills further as a member of our experienced team. We are delighted to have them both on board.”
