Clayton brings years of industry experience and fresh ideas to one of Manchester’s premier event locations

Manchester, N.H. – (October 9, 2018) – The Falls Event Center welcomed Manchester native Colleen Clayton as its new banquet & catering sales manager. Clayton was hired by The Falls’ parent company, Roedel Companies, in July to ensure the highest level of service and seamless sales process for all customers, and to continue building The Falls’ client portfolio by highlighting it as one of Southern New Hampshire’s premier event facilities.

“Colleen has been in the food, beverage and hospitality industry for more than thirty years, but you don’t need to read her resume to know all that she’s capable of,” said Glenn Hardman, President of RGH Hospitality, management subsidiary of Roedel Companies. “As a Manchester native, Colleen knows this region like the back of her hand, and it’s rare to meet someone who doesn’t know Colleen personally. We’re thrilled to have someone so dedicated to the success of the local community on our team.”

The Falls Event Center, which opened in 2016 following a $1.5 million, complete interior renovation, features more than 7,000 square feet of flexible event space, including seasonal outdoor space. Each space is customizable to meet the needs of the client and comes with professionals to handle all details of each event – be it a corporate meeting or social celebration. The Falls Event Center offers customizable menus, on-site overnight accommodations overlooking the beautiful Amoskeag Falls, and ample parking. Located in the historic Millyard district at 21 Front Street, just off exit 6 on Interstate 293, The Falls Event Center boasts a convenient location for guests traveling from near and far.

“From our Niagara Room, which holds up to 250 guests, to our smaller, private rooms, lobby and halls, The Falls offers a unique opportunity to get creative with layout and customization in making the vision of our clients a reality,” said Colleen Clayton, banquet & catering sales manager of The Falls Event Center. “I’m continuously impressed by our talented culinary team and professional event staff on their dedication to client satisfaction for each and every event, and very much look forward to showing the rest of Southern New Hampshire and beyond how The Falls can make their next event one to remember.”

Prior to joining The Falls Event Center as banquet & catering sales manager, Clayton was responsible for growing wine and liquor sales and organizing events for a number of organizations throughout New Hampshire, New England and Florida, including Perfecta Wine Company, Total Wine and More, Martignetti Companies of New Hampshire, United Beverages Inc., and Westwood Restaurant Group. Clayton received her Bachelor of Science in Hotel Management from New Hampshire College (now Southern New Hampshire University), and she currently resides in her hometown of Manchester with her husband John Clayton, the executive director of Manchester Historic Association, another Manchester native.

The Falls Event center, conveniently located just off exit 6 on Interstate 293, offers more than 7,000 square feet of flexible event space, including the Niagara Room, pictured above, which can host more than 250 guests.
