Roxanna Malik is the newest recruit to the CHS team and joins us as Operations Manager.
Roxanna began her career 9 years ago as a duty manager and more recently was events manager at Harrogate Convention Centre. We speak with Roxanna on joining the CHS team, the projects she will be working on and what makes her tick.
1. Tell us about your career to date?
After travelling around the world, I returned to the UK and worked as a duty manager at Hebden Bridge Picture House and also at Victoria Theatre in Halifax. I also worked as a visitor experience manager at the National Media Museum in Bradford and these roles have provided me with a wide and varied experience in the hospitality and events industry. In 2015, I joined Harrogate Convention Centre as an events manager and worked on conferences, exhibitions, public shows and live events. I’m also a registrar and love creating bespoke ceremonies for happy couples on their wedding day.
2. What projects will you be working on as our new operations manager?
I’m really looking forward to working on CHS Leeds as we have a lot of exciting developments that we are planning for our 11th show in 2020 and I can’t wait to work behind the scenes in producing this iconic show. I will also be producing the CHS Awards which showcases the very best of the hospitality industry, so that will also be a highlight for me. There are many other great events for me to get my teeth into, so I will be kept very busy over the next few months!
3. What inspires you?
I love working with motivational and positive people. The events industry is a sector which I find has a lot of dedicated and motivated individuals and I’m looking forward to building relationships with clients in my new role as operations manager at CHS Group.
4. Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
I’m a very keen salsa dancer! I absolutely love the music and rhythm of the dance, it’s a lot of fun and also great exercise, and you can dance away the stresses and strains of life.
