ExCeL London has appointed Roger Hooker (pictured) to the role of chief operating officer in a move that strengthens the UK flagship venue’s executive leadership team.
Hooker, whose father was also a prominent figure within the events industry, brings with him more than 25 years’ experience – garnered both in the UK and abroad – from leading organisations including Ascot Racecourse, the former Wembley Stadium Ltd and the Baku European Games.
He also spent several years overseeing the non-London event venues as part of the build-up and implementation of the 2012 London Olympic & Paralympic Games. More recently, he is best known for his six-and-a-half-years at the all-electric motorsport series Formula E, where he was responsible for delivering more than 70 races as the championship’s event delivery director.
