British Fencing is pleased to announce that following a competitive interview process, Amy Grant has been appointed to the role of Event Manager.
Amy has over 13 years’ experience working in events and venues and has been involved with a range of sporting, entertainment and cultural events. These include Rugby World Cup 2015, The London Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Edinburgh Fringe and iTunes Festivals and Southbank Centre’s Festival programme.
