Gawn will be based at the agency’s Carlton Mills office and will be responsible for project management and communications. She has more than ten years’ industry experience and previously worked as a corporate events officer for Leeds Beckett University and for Squire Sanders Hammond.  

Gawn said: "I was attracted to the role at VISTA due to the wide range of clients the agency works with. Finding a senior project role that allows you to work across a range of services including film and digital within an communications arena is rare." 

James Wilkins, VISTA’s managing director, said: "Ruth is a great addition to the team, and will be a valuable asset to the business. We’re continuing our growth within the communications space and upholding our commitment to deliver consistent excellence for our clients, and surround our team with the best talent. We can only deliver excellence by hiring excellence."
