New corporate sales executive at Magna

3 June 2015

Magna has appointed a new event sales executive as part of its corporate team to keep up with demand.

Lee Wilkinson, who previously worked for Sheffield Wednesday Football Club and Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, will help cope with increased corporate bookings at the venue.

Magna, which is based in the former Templeborough steelworks near junction 34 of the M1, has space that can be hired for meetings from five to up to 5,000 people.

Lee, who lives in Sheffield, will also help bring in more sporting events, such as boxing. The venue can now cater for bigger audiences for such events due to alterations to seating in the Big Hall.

As well as being a corporate venue, Magna is an award-winning visitor attraction, with more than 100 hands-on exhibits designed to explore the four elements of air, water, earth and fire. It also hosts regular school trips.
