London, 3rd December 2014 – Priava, the leading cloud-based venue management software company has announced the appointment of two former events professionals to support its growing UK business.
Priava has seen a 70% jump in revenues this year as the demand for venue management technology has increased. As a result the company is expanding its sales and marketing team and welcomes Michael Jeanes and Theresa Mullan both of whom come from the events industry.
Michael Jeanes who was previously the Conference and Events Manager at University of Surrey will take on the role of Business Development Manager to help existing and prospective customers understand the potential benefits of automating venue and event management with cloud-based technology.
“With my past experience of overseeing over 500 events a year, it is easier for me to empathise with a venue’s day to day challenges and how technology can help them to save time, improve efficiency and boost revenues. In particular Priava’s cloud solution is really easy to use, reduces training and can be accessed regardless of location.”

Similarly, Theresa Mullan who joins as Marketing Coordinator and holds a degree in Communications and Media Studies (Marketing & Advertising) from the University of Wollongong is also originally from the events industry, having worked at The Trippas White Group; Australia’s leading restaurant and catering company that manages a diverse portfolio of iconic venues across the country.
With over six years spent within the events and hospitality sector in both sales and marketing, Theresa is well positioned to identify and promote the positive impact that Priava’s cloud based solutions can have on the day-to-day lives of event and venue management professionals.
She commented, “Having worked with Events Perfect in my last role, I witnessed some of the positive ways that technology can facilitate processes but also some of the limitations of using out-of-date systems. With Priava’s cloud solution, busy event teams have the ability to save vast amounts of time, streamline operations and find all the information they need within seconds. Unlike many other systems it is also incredibly easy to use and can be tailored specifically to the needs of a particular type of venue.”
Priava’s customers include all types of venues from football stadiums through to museums and heritage.
