Young talent shines through for Sodexo, landing a host of positive media coverage

A RISING star of the hospitality scene has helped steal the headlines for one of Scotland’s specialist catering experts.

At the tender age of just 22, Georgia McKay has become one of the youngest ever Sales Managers with hospitality giant, Sodexo Prestige.

Now Georgia’s success story has been reported across a wide range of titles earning powerful coverage for Sodexo – all thanks to the food and drink PR experts at Holyrood PR in Edinburgh, Scotland. Coverage included:

  • A major article in influential local paper, The Hamilton Advertiser, reaching 12,500 readers
  • Extensive coverage in respected business titles, including the Scottish Business News Network and Daily Business Group
  • A host of articles in the all-important Meetings, Incentive, Conferences and Events (MICE) media, including Incentive Travel and the HBAA

Georgia, from Strathaven in Lanarkshire, has taken up her new role at Hamilton Park Racecourse, one of 17 high-profile venues across Scotland where Sodexo Prestige is the exclusive catering and hospitality partner.

Upon leaving school, she decided to pursue a career path with the reputed hospitality specialist rather than take up her place at University.

Georgia’s promotion comes after four years working at the race course in the role of Sales Coordinator, for which she was awarded ‘Sales Coordinator of the Year’ for the UK and Ireland in 2012.

Thanks to Holyrood PR – food and drink PR experts based in Edinburgh, Scotland – Georgia’s story flew out of the gate and found its way to a plethora of media outlets.

For a number of years, Holyrood PR has worked with Sodexo Prestige Venues and Events to share its  many different stories with key industry press and national newspapers.
