The O2

Having lost its Vice President and Finance Director to parent company AEG Europe earlier this week, London’s dome-covered venue The O2 has announced replacements in the form of Steve Sayer and Gavin Brind respectively.

Sayer – previously Commercial Director at The O2 – replaces John Langford, who is now COO at AEG Europe. Brind rises up from his job as Deputy Finance Director, taking over from Paul Reeve, who is now AEG Europe’s CFO. As Reeve did before him, Brind also gets to be in charge of finance stuff at Wembley Arena. Such fun.

That’s not all though. Shit, no. Danielle Kennedy-Clark has also been promoted from Operations Director to Deputy General Manager.

In his new AEG Europe COO guise, Langford says in a statement: “I’m delighted to be announcing that Steve, Danielle and Gavin will be leading The O2 from January. Their combined experience in managing this incredible venue, working alongside the senior leadership team means that the world’s busiest arena will continue to flourish”.

So there you go. Update your rolodexes, everyone.
