Dorothy Constantino

Events Marketing Manager

After graduating from The University of Portsmouth with a First Class (Hons) Degree in English Language, I began my career in marketing for a US tech company which gave me the opportunity to travel to the US. For three years on the marketing side in London for EMEA, I was responsible for PR, social media, strategic partner marketing, lead gen and event planning and management. I’m extremely excited to now be working for Merlin Events and unleash my creative side! There’s plenty to learn and contribute to our B2C Event Marketing efforts and I couldn’t be happier to be part of the Merlin family. In my spare time, I hunt the entirety of London for brunch spots (which also doubles as exercise… all those steps!)

Edmar Evangelista

Events Operations Manager

I was an Operations Manager at the Dali Universe for 8 years before freelancing for Merlin Events for two years. I then spent four and a half years working for Food by Dish as a General Catering Manager at their boutique venue in Mayfair No.4 Hamilton Place. Then, to satisfy my explorative spirit I travelled extensively around the Middle East, South East Asia and Brazil which was a phenomenal experience. Learning about new cultures and cuisine was incredible and I’m happy I took the opportunity to travel. Now as a full time Events Operations Manager for Merlin Events I am enjoying my new challenges around our portfolio of central London venues and am looking forward to bringing my previous experience, knowledge and enthusiasm for excellent service to all events.

Lucy Wade

Event Sales Supervisor

After college I spent eight years working abroad in the French Alps, Mediterranean and the Caribbean before settling back in London. I worked at 1 Wimpole Street and Chandos House, where I stayed for 6 years, starting as the office administrator and working up to account manager. It was a great grounding for working in events with the two different venues and a variety of bookings from small meetings to large conferences and dinners. Whilst there, I also got to attend trade shows and saw how vast the events industry is. I started at Merlin Events in September 2017 and have loved learning all about the event spaces in the venues and helping clients to match their requirements to one of our venues for a fabulous event.

Alexandrea Wilson

Events Coordinator

<em>After completing my A Levels in Derby, I spent the following four years working in hospitality management, followed by event site support for a large engineering corporate. This is really where my passion for events came about; so much so that I decided to pursue an Event and Festival Management Degree at Buckinghamshire New University, graduating with a First Class Honours. During my studies, I spent the majority of my spare time gaining professional experience within corporate, fundraising and festival sectors, as well as attending some wacky and wonderful events worldwide. I am now incredibly proud to be working for Merlin Events and so excited to see what the future has to hold in this ever evolving industry. In my spare time I also love keeping active, whether that be at a boot camp or on the dancefloor!</em>
