A Leeds-based national cocktail firm has appointed three new staff members to support the rapid growth of the business.

These new appointments join office manager, Euan MacLeod, Charlotte Rendall, accounts manager, Ellie MacDonald, PR & communications specialist, Jade Woodfield as marketing manager and Farah who supports the firm’s HR & staffing.

Zest Mixology, established by Murdo MacLeod in 2011, has made the appointment to support the flourishing business.

Timmy Wright has more than 10 years of industry experience in running pubs, bars and clubs and joins Zest Mixology as an event specialist. He will be working alongside Jack Bennett who also joins as an event specialist.

With bartending experience and experience gained from supporting a family business and undertaking internships, Jack has a strong events background and focuses on the operations and logistics within Zest Mixology.

Keen to support Zest Mixology with any changes and developments, Jack already feels passionate about the business and is grateful for the support he receives from Murdo. He says:

“What makes Zest Mixology special is the people that work for it. The working relationship between myself, Timmy and Murdo is really good, we’re different from one another but work well together. That’s what makes it special, we are always at the heart of the event and know each and every event inside and out.”

Currently studying Events Management at Leeds Beckett University, Emily joins the team as an events administrator where she organises the administrative side of the events. With five years of industry experience, Emily’s passion for events will allow her to support Zest Mixology. She says:

“Zest caters for everything, there’s not a pop up bar or event furniture brief we’ve not managed to fit yet. It’s great to be part of a young and fun vibrant team.”

Founder and managing director of the firm, Murdo MacLeod adds:
“It is an exciting time for Zest Mixology. The new appointments have been made to support our continuous growth and we firmly believe 2017 to be our biggest year yet!”
