He joins Corporate Innovations’ 14-strong events team based in North Oxfordshire.

"I think I bring a unique range of skills to Corporate Innovations [CI] because I have worked at event venues and also been a supplier into the industry," said Rowland. "I have seen events from all angles and that has given me a fantastic insight into what works and what doesn’t. I’m looking forward to using my experience to good affect at CI."

David Watt, managing director at Corporate Innovations, commented: "David’s career experience is vast and that has allowed him to transform the way events are organised. That gives us a major advantage when we’re working with clients to deliver an outstanding event. We’re pleased to have him on board."
