Under the new structure, Sally-Ann Edmonds and Ed Snowling have been promoted joint managing directors. They will be responsible for targeting further growth at the agency as it aims to increase its revenue to £8m for 2015.

The restructure also sees the acquisition of RDC Audio after owner, Steve Neave, joined the agency as technical director. Production Bureau’s former technical director Angus Reid will move into a strategic role within the company. 

Simon Price has been hired in the role of director of creative services. Price has had a varied production career creating, managing and producing a wide range of corporate TV and online campaigns for global brands.

David Bye has been appointed to the role of director of stage, scenery and exhibitions, due to a ‘massive rise’ in the agency’s number of exhibition and experiential clients. 

Snowling said: "I would rate Steve Neave as one of the UK’s top sound designers and I am delighted that he has chosen to bring RDC to Production Bureau, it’s a deal that is perfect for both parties."

Production Bureau is currently investing £1m across its Norwich and Edinburgh sites, and will soon be moving into a newly built workshop and warehouse facility that will accommodate its expanding exhibition and experiential division.

Production Bureau’s owner, Ian Greenfield, said: "26 years ago I could not have dreamt of what we have achieved. I'm inspired by the young team around me and these latest changes are aimed at giving them every opportunity for their future with Production Bureau."
