Kate Douglas – Business Development Manager - As As You Like It, The Holy Hobo, Newton Hall, Le Petit Chateau
Joined Apartment Group in the role of Business Development Manager. Responsible for growing the business across every venue, by fostering and developing relationships with customers, suppliers and other partners.
What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on at Apartment Group?
I am currently working on the rebrand of Mr Lynch (known as The Holy Hobo). I love this venue because of the diverse clientele it brings; from students to corporate parties, it caters for all. The newly refurbed venue now has a brand new room, ‘Dr’s Lair’, which can be hired out for a range of events. The speakeasy is a self-contained hidden gem within Jesmond. I’m enjoying working on this venue and helping it develop by primarily focusing on pushing its creative flair, and broadening our client reach. There really is nothing like it in the area!
What do you love most about your job?
I love working in a positive environment where everyone around you wants to help and support each other. It is quite clear there is great personal development opportunities within the company; and so it’s exciting that you’re constantly driven by seeing your goals at arms reach. I also love that the company has a wide range of venues from bars and restaurants to wedding venues and more, which means we can cater to a wide range of clientele – there is never a dull moment! It’s great to help build a brand you truly believe in.
What makes Apartment Group different?
We are known for our creativity, and instead of just launching a venue, we launch a brand created with a lot of colour, heart and Duncan always has a reason behind. Our team excel at their jobs and constantly put so much into everything they do.
