Jackson is to leave GPJ within six months after a four-year stint. Commenting on his decision to leave, Jackson said that as his profile and reputation has grown both within and outside of the industry, he’s seen new opportunities to share his perspective and expertise with a wider audience.
"Throughout my career, things have tended to go in three-to-four year cycles, and so it feels like now is a good time to move on. I’m especially keen to do more around enhancing the reputation of our rapidly evolving sector, and spend more time nurturing the next generation of talent."
GPJ UK managing director, Jason Megson, said: "2015 has got off to a fantastic start for GPJ, with a number of major account wins shortly to be announced, which is a testament to our team’s and Kevin’s hard work and tenacity.
"In the following months we will work closely with Kevin on a managed transition of responsibilities as we realign our business development function. We wish him all the very best in his future endeavours and thank him for his contribution to GPJ’s current position as one of EMEA’s leading experience marketing agencies "
Jackson joined GPJ in 2011 from Jack Morton Worldwide, where he was senior vice president, sales and marketing, EMEA.
Jackson is president-elect of the UK chapter of the International Special Events Society (ISES). Last year, he was also appointed chair a new EMEA Community Relations Committee for ISES, aimed at boosting relationships between ISES EMEA chapters and ISES chapters globally.
