Rebecca Carter

General ManagerJFP_0044

Being General Manager of Sundial SOS is a great privilege.

I joined Sundial Group over 12 years ago (2003), and over those years have been fortunate enough to gain valuable experience in all aspects of the the hospitality business; from understanding what it takes to run a venue successfully, to finding venues, to delivering excellent client and supplier relationships, to managing and building a strong and happy team.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, two young girls (who give me a lot of different challenges to contend with!) as well as visiting the theatre and enjoying a glass of wine (or two) with my friends!
