Beth Atkinson has joined the company from her previous role as communications advisor at Morrisons, while Jennifer Stockton has been appointed from York St John University, where she worked with high-profile speakers to boost the institution’s profile.
Prior to their previous roles, Stockton spent seven years as an events manager for The Higher Education Company, while Atkinson worked as an events manager for Bupa.
James Wilkins, managing director at Vista, said the appointments were in line with the agency’s commitment to discovering new talent. The hires follow new business wins, a rebrand and the appointment of an advisory board earlier this year.
"Vista works with some of the UK’s biggest brands, from household names to FTSE 100 companies, the breadth of services they deliver to each client is unique," said Stockton. "Their services, commitment to CSR and employee development meant they were the only choice."
