Meet the Team – Agents and Venue

We’re your dedicated agents and venues team…….get to know us more!

 

SARAH FITZGERALD   |   Account Director 

t: 01782 647017 e: sarah.fitzgerald@kdmevents.com

After joining KDM in 2003 as a shy and quiet Sales Co-ordinator Sarah quickly found her [sometimes very loud] voice managing our Venue and Agent partnerships. She is now an Account Director developing new and existing client relationships and being the first port of the call for any venue query that arises. What Sarah doesn’t know about venues…. we don’t think there is anything actually! Sarah dreams of owning her very own stately home with a Bollinger cellar (and one for Budweiser too!)

What things make your day better?

Random fancy dress moments……and a can of Red Bull!

What’s your favourite place in the world and why?

Looe in Cornwall, my spiritual home ….. sand, sea and lots of pubs!

 

 

CHARLOTTE BOARD   |   Account Manager 

t: 01782 647009 e: charlotte.board@kdmevents.com

 

Charlotte joined KDM in 2014 with a Diploma in International Event & Wedding Planning and spent most her time travelling between London and New York City. Charlotte joined KDM as an Account Executive before being promoted to Account Manager and then into her current role of Agent & Venue Development. She is a huge fan of Unicorns, Country Music and is a keen songwriter – one of her songs made it to number 3 on the iTunes country music charts! In her spare time she can be found gigging, songwriting and planning holidays to the USA whilst dreaming of making her millions to buy her very own New York Manhattan townhouse!!! Hopefully, we are all invited …

What are you most afraid of?

Penguins and Prison! Maybe I have a problem with the letter P?! I have never broken the law and never will because being confined to a cell terrifies me. I think I like my freedom too much! Penguins are just a phobia that I have had since I was a child. They are extremely strange animals.  

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Stubborn, dedicated, dreamer!

 

 

KAYLEIGH FYFE   |   Account Manager 

t: 01782 647004 e: kayleigh.fyfe@kdmevents.com

 

Kayleigh came to KDM with lots of solid experience working in fundraisers, festivals and most recently building an impressive sales record in private hire venues. Now with a degree in Event Management under her belt, Kayleigh is using her keen skills to work with our Agent and Venue partners in looking after their client event requirements. Being able to confidently advise, quote and organise the best solutions, Kayleigh is proving to be a strong member of our helpful sales team. Outside of KDM life, Kayleigh spends her precious spare time (not that she has that much!) with her partner and young children, Isaac and Ezrah, whilst ‘attempting’ to complete her MSc in Digital Marketing.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done?

I use to be a performer and spent much of my time Stilt Walking or Angle Grinding.

What Skill would you like to learn?

I would love to learn another language. I think either Spanish or Mandarin

 

CLAIRE TARALA   |   Account Manager 

t: 01782 647010 e: claire.tarala@kdmevents.com

Having an HND in Travel & Tourism Management and working as a travel agent specialising in Santa’s Lapland and wildlife holidays (aww), Claire then made the switch to corporate events in 2007. After gaining bags of experience in venue finding, key account management and organising large conferences she joined KDM as an Account Manager looking after client, agent and venue sales.  She enjoys nothing more than having fun with her husband and son, going walking, cycling and camping. Apparently one day soon she would also like to learn how to play the drums…so along with our other KDM musicians, singers and songwriters, we foresee a possible KDM band on the horizon!

If you could be in any other occupation other than the one you are in now, what would it be?

Palaeontologist – it would be cool to discover a new dinosaur! I would call it the Clairesaurous.

What things make your day better?

Caffeine, sunshine and cuddles from my husband and son

 

 

JAMAICA RIDGE   |   Account Executive 

t: 01782 647006 e: jamiaca.ridge@kdmevents.com

KDM were really pleased to welcome Jamaica in her first full-time Events Industry role after graduating from Manchester University with a BA Hons degree in Events Management. And because she managed to jam in hospitality experience by working as a Holiday Rep in Bulgaria and in UK 4* Hotels during her studies it was an easy step into the role of Venues Co-ordinator here at KDM. Supporting our Direct sales team, she makes sure that our clients get the best options in venue sourcing with pricing, proposals and site visits. Making her popular with all our other food and drink appreciating staff, Jamaica also likes lots of food and drinks with friends at the weekend. Which apparently keeps her really busy!

If you could be invisible for one day what would you do?

Thinking about it … I would probably follow my dog! I would love to see what he gets up to when I’m not around. 

What do you feel most proud of?

The only person in my immediate family to get a degree – and work in the related industry.
