Justin Phillips takes on the role of client services director. Phillips has worked as Freeman's UK commercial director since the agency acquired the SO Group in March 2013. He brings more than ten years' event industry experience to the position, and will be responsible for leading the expo client solutions team both in the UK and EMEA region.

Sarah Cox has left her position as Mayridge business development director to become Freeman's director of project management. She will be responsible for aligning the company's sales, production and show site execution capabilities.

Former AEO, AEV and ESSA adviser Lee Holloway joins as safety health environmental and quality manager. He will work with team members and clients to develop health-and-safety initiatives that comply with growing legal requirements.

"The appointments of Justin, Sarah and Lee are indicative of our desire to add individuals who bring a high level of experience and expertise to our team," said Anthony Floreano, managing director of Freeman’s UK operations.

"I have tremendous confidence in their abilities and I am certain they will help us as we continue to strive to deliver world-class service for our clients," he added.
