In the newly created role, Bost – an ATPI management team stalwart – will direct strategy and lead a 120-strong team with a track record in both corporate and international sporting events, across offices in Greece, France, India, Australia, Hong Kong and the USA, as well as the Netherlands and the UK.

Graham Ramsey, CEO of the ATPI Group, said the appointment of Peter Bost and the development of the events operation is a "strategic decision" to ensure the company leads the events market on a global scale.

ATPI is known for its work on the Olympic, Paralympic and Winter Olympic Games, as well as last year’s successful Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It has more than 100 offices worldwide and successful operations in event management, corporate travel, shipping and energy and online travel technology.

Peter Bost commented: "As part of a larger global company we have access to specialist events teams in key locations around the world, and the opportunity to both grow our portfolio, as well as applying our knowledge of the complex logistics required for major international tournaments to corporate event and incentive requirements. It is a very exciting time for our business."

The appointment follows ATPI Group’s acquisition of international travel business Griffin at the end of 2014, and enhancements to the management structure of the overall Group made in 2015.
