Commenting on the appointment, CEO and Club Secretary David Herbert said: “We are delighted to have appointed Medina Williamson as Head of Sales at The Lansdowne Club. Her warmth, enthusiasm and wealth of experience will be invaluable as we seek to expand the scope of our long-term targets for the benefit of our Members. I have no doubt that Medina’s passion and flair will be a great asset to us, and that she will be a brilliant addition to the team.”
Medina Williamson added: “One of my earliest careers goals was to work in the London hospitality industry, and whilst I have worked in some of its best-known venues, I am really looking forward to being able to let my creativity and versatility shine working at one of the capital’s most iconic private members’ clubs – and hopefully even introducing a few innovative surprises for our Members along the way.”
