Wilford returns to DBMT, where she was previously account manager, after a stint at Noble Events. She joined the latter agency as senior account manager in March 2012.

DBMT said it was opening the Milton Keynes office in a bid to drive further growth through existing and prospective clients based in and around the area. Wilford is being joined at the operation by project manager Leanne Wilkinson, while DBMT is also looking to recruit a another project manager/executive.

Wilford, a former C&IT A-lister, said: "I'm delighted to be rejoining DBMT at such an exciting time as the business expands. The office in Milton Keynes provides the perfect base for us to deliver enhanced levels of service to existing customers and to maximise the new business opportunities that are developing in the area."

David Bottrill, DBMT's managing director, added: "This is a really exciting time for DBMT and we are very much focused on growth in 2013, despite the current doom and gloom that we seem to read about on a daily basis.

"Live events and incentive travel are very much alive, and whilst the world is a vastly different place to what it was five years ago, now is the time to look ahead and invest for the future."
