Callin, former managing director of Sound by Design, will be responsible for the co-ordination and growth of all ISES operations outside the US. He has managed ISES EMEA for the last five years and has overseen the expansion of ISES Europe and ISES UK, as well as creating ISES Middle East, ISES Turkey and ISES Nigeria.

Morgan, who is marketing director of Crewsaders, will be responsible for the management and operations for ISES's five EMEA chapters  – Europe, Middle East, Nigeria, Turkey and the UK.

Callin said: "James has made a significant contribution to the UK chapter over the past couple of years and, most importantly, taken a key interest in ISES as an international organisation, supporting the Stateside meetings held twice a year. The EMEA Affiliate has many diverse cultures and James’s previous international marketing experience makes him ideal for the role."

Morgan added; "The EMEA region is seen by ISES as the new growth hub for the organisation and Andy has successfully delivered a culturally sensitive business model that has led to penetration into new markets. I intend to continue his work on the growth agenda and create a greater interconnectivity between the EMEA chapters for the future success of the ISES EMEA region and the organisation as a whole."
