He joins at a key time for the firm, which recently launched one of the biggest recruitment drives in its history with almost 300 jobs available in the West Midlands; as featured in the May print edition of Professional Security.
Carl, pictured left, said: “I’m delighted to be joining Stadium and working alongside such a respected team, which has developed an excellent reputation within the events industry. It is also a company which has seen a tremendous amount of growth in recent years, and I feel that ambition – and the core values of honesty and integrity – align perfectly with me. I’m looking forward to getting out there, meeting our clients, and getting on the ground with all of our teams.”
Carl, who’s from Northampton, joins from OCS Group. Before that he was Head of Events at Carlisle Support Services, working at the likes of The All England Club, Lord’s Cricket, and Cheltenham Racecourse.
