Janie Gonsalez has stepped into the role of Business Development Executive at business networking organisation, The Yorkshire Mafia (YM).
Having previously worked as a part-time events assistant as well as writing and editing for a student magazine, Ms Gonsalez will assist with the planning of the YM’s year-round schedule of activities whilst nurturing both new and existing client relationships.
She said: “I love the fast-paced nature of the events planning process and working on Leeds Business Week, which was my first large event with the YM. It gave me a great insight into what I can expect going forward and was a perfect opportunity to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in. I know we have an exciting year planned, with plenty to work on in the pipeline.”
Jessica Coates, Marketing and Events Manager at the YM, said: “We’re really pleased to have Janie on board. She’s already made a fantastic contribution to the team with her support during Leeds Business Week and with a host of drinks evenings.”
