Management Changes At Zonal
14th December 2018 Paul Andrews
Zonal, the UK’s leading tech innovator for the hospitality sector, has announced key changes to its senior leadership management team as it prepares for its next era of growth.
Sales & Marketing Director, Clive Consterdine, is retiring after more than eight years with Zonal but will continue his close association with the firm as a consultant.
Zonal’s chief executive, Stuart McLean, said: “Clive has been instrumental in the success of Zonal since joining our board almost nine years ago. It has been a true privilege to work with him over the years and he is both liked and respected, not only within the Zonal family, but throughout the industry. The Zonal team wish Clive all the best in his new adventures and we look forward to continuing to work with him on special projects.”
To capitalise on recent growth and the strategic direction of the business, Zonal will create two new director roles.
Kara Purves will take on the new role of Group Marketing Director in January 2019. Kara brings with her over 19 years’ experience in senior marketing positions within the technology sector. In her new role, Kara will focus on promoting the company’s marketing led products and establishing a stronger group profile.
To further drive sales, Tim Chapman has been promoted to the role of Sales Director and will focus on maintaining Zonal’s position as the UK’s number one provider of technology solutions for the hospitality sector, as well as developing emerging market opportunities.
“We are delighted to welcome Kara to the team and see Tim step up in his new role. I’m confident that our broader leadership team both will help us to drive the company to even greater heights as we reach our 40th anniversary in 2019,” added Stuart.
Zonal is the leading provider of integrated hospitality management solutions to over 16,000 leisure and hospitality businesses across the UK. For 39 years the company has been working closely with clients to enhance the customer experience through market leading technology, experienced people and a partnership approach to business.
