Anna Workman has joined the agency this week as assistant event manager and will be working primarily on Lodestar’s account with Centrica Energy.

The energy company has appointed Lodestar in a year-long deal for 2011 after initially running a 22-date roadshow last year.

Meanwhile, Christian Russell joins the agency in 1 March as a senior producer and will focus mainly on the Nissan account.

He has previously worked as head of events at Five and Nine and senior event producer at The Bank.

Lodestar managing director Phil Watton said: "We decided to employ more people because of the amount of business we have done in the past year and the work we have going forward. Particularly on Centrica Energy and Nissan we have seen a lot of growth."

Nissan is running a celebration event on 23-25 March for 300 of its dealers and their partners at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, which involves work from Lodestar, BI and Rouge.

The automotive brand is alsoworking closely with Lodestar on experiential work at its Innovation Station showcase at the O2 in London.

Lodestar – which was set up in 2005 – is also planning a move to larger premises to accommodate the expanded team, but will remain in Fulham.
