We are delighted to welcome Christian Lacey to the ted family, as our new Business Development Director.
Christian specialises in the change management process and has been responsible for significant change planning and delivery projects throughout his career, with Sainsbury’s and TUI.
His most recent role was with TUI, as Head of Supplier Management and Ancillaries for Marella Cruises, ahead of joining ted‘s Leadership Team in early June.
Christian’s new role will see him lead the growth of the business with both new and established clients, as well as driving change and efficiencies across our six departments.
He will also take ownership of the sales and marketing functions, and lead the development and training strategy, inspiring and motivating an already successful team to the next level of business performance.
“The focus is on growth”
Reflecting on his appointment, Christian said: “It’s a great honour to be joining the ted board as Business Development Director, bringing my skills and experiences to such an innovative, forward-thinking business.
“It’s been a unique period, starting a new role during a global pandemic, but it’s been fantastic getting to know the team, albeit remotely.
“I’ve already developed a much greater understanding of ted, and the breadth of services we offer across our wide-ranging entertainment portfolio. That’s been fascinating in itself!
“Looking to the future, the focus is on growth, both internally and externally. We want to drive improvement from within and then, from there, grow as a business by developing our relationships with new and existing clients.
“I have a genuine passion for people and I can’t wait to work closely with every member of our incredibly talented team, in what is a really exciting time for us.”
On behalf of the Leadership Team, ted CEO Robin Breese-Davies added: “Christian has been successful in every role in his career.
“He’s extremely ambitious, which is important as he has joined a team and company which shares that. He also aligns perfectly with our brand values of being creative, passionate and straightforward.
“At ted we are always looking forward, so with Christian’s new energy and skillset we are very excited about our future.”Back To News
