On 23rd June, Graham Owen, Club Secretary at Phyllis Court Club announced the appointment of Caroline O’Connor, Commercial Director. He confirms “this is an important new role in the history of the Club and especially created with the imminent building of ‘The Fitness Centre’. The role will provide a strategic direction for the Club over the next 5 years and will manage Sales, Membership and Marketing functions.”
Caroline, who was selected after a rigorous interview process, brings 10 years’ commercial consultancy experience in Sales and Marketing, but has also 12 years’ earlier experience of working at Phyllis Court Club she is “very excited to be back at this significant time in the Club’s history”.
The Club has undertaken an active new membership programme to promote the new Fitness Centre that reached the 2017 members target at the end of 2016. It is anticipated that this will continue as The Fitness Centre will become operational in 2018, which could mean that the Club creates a membership waiting list for new members.
Caroline is looking forward to growing the current business, looking after the nearly 3000 members and also attracting more corporate, conference, hotel and wedding business.
Graham Owen is delighted to welcome Caroline “as she understands the Club from her previous experience. I am looking forward to Caroline using her sales and marketing skills to enhance what we have to offer for current and new members, who will enjoy the benefits of the Club, particularly as we move into the next exciting chapter of Phyllis Court Club’s development”.
