  • Director of Sales, Meetings & Events
  • mashton-wort@rchmail.com

I joined Red Carnation Hotels in 2007 as a Sales Executive at the Montague on the Gardens Hotel. I had previously worked in Events in London for 18 months and prior to this I worked in Christchurch, New Zealand in Food & Beverage and Events. During my five years at The Montague I became Director of Sales for corporate business, where I was responsible for the Conference & Events teams. Now, as Director of Sales, Meetings and Events for the Red Carnation Hotels collection, I am combining my experience in both Sales and Events. The thing I most enjoy about working for Red Carnation is the people I work with and the fact top quality service and our guests experiences are of the utmost importance to all our teams.

  • Chesterfield Mayfair - Conference and Banqueting
  • meetch@rchmail.com

Chasing adventure and looking for a challenge I came to London from South Africa in 2012. I found this adventure at The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel where I spent two years with the Reservations team before moving up to Conference and Banqueting.  Red Carnation is a family-run organisation and this shines through in the way we conduct ourselves and relate to our guests and clients. Without a doubt, our service standards are what set us apart and my aim is to listen carefully and provide exemplary support to make sure that my clients’ expectations are exceeded at all times.  I enjoy putting in that ‘little bit extra’ to secure a successful event.

  • Ashford Castle - Conference and Banqueting Coordinator
  • banquetingash@ashfordcastle.com

Growing up in the West of Ireland and loving conversations with visiting Tourists gave me a passion for the hospitality industry. I began working in hotels all the way through college, and felt privileged to be offered the Trainee Management Programme in Ashford Castle in 2007. Having successfully completed the programme I worked in the Castle for 4 years, before heading to Australia for a year. My commitment to Ashford must have been recognised, because on return, I was welcomed back to the position of Sales and Banqueting Co-Ordinator, a position I love, because part of my role is to assist Brides and Grooms in creating THE most special day of their lives!
