Wilkes, who has 15 years experience in the events sector including roles at Grass Roots, Jack Morton and The Fresh Group, will be supported by three additional new members.
Jo Morgan joins as logistics director, Silvia Harriman as senior logistics manager, and Lauren Hyder as logistics coordinator.
The new division will provide services including digital communications and registration, customer acquisition strategies and engagement, as well as venue, catering, welfare and travel services.
Financial accounts filed on Companies House in May revealed a pre tax profit of £1m for the year ending 31 December 2014. Turnover for the year saw a significant increase of 164% from £6.5m to £17.2m.
Innovision already operates production, creative, digital, technical, finance and operation departments and the new division highlights an increase in logistics-focused events for the London-based agency.
Wilkes explained: "Bringing this service in-house is just a natural evolution for Innovision, providing some real focus in what is an exciting and growing area for us.
"We have a number of large-scale logistics-focused events in the pipeline and I can’t wait to work alongside such a talented team in continuing to deliver real value for our clients."
