Former Late Night London national account manager Milan Thakrar joins as business development manager, while Sam Glenister-Batey joins as events manager at the Tower of London.

Thakrar will be working directly with event agencies to cultivate and develop opportunities for all six venues within HRP’s portfolio. 

He commented: "The move to HRP was definitely the right decision for me. This is a great time to be joining the organisation which is home to some of the most iconic event spaces in the industry. I’m looking forward to working with the team here to explore the numerous opportunities available to us and widely promote the functions and event offering to the agency world."

Previously at the Science Museum Group, Glenister-Batey brings with him a wealth of knowledge and skills including direct sales experience. He described his new position as a "dream role".

Liz Young, head of functions and events for HRP said: "I believe they will both be great assets to HRP."
