Lynn O’Riordan, who joined Concerto Live this week, has more than five years’ experience in the industry, working with agencies Capita Travel and Events and Grass Roots Meetings & Events as a venue finder for Ernst & Young and Deloitte.

Meanwhile Clare Burgon, previously a producer at SEE (Service Events & Exhibitions), has recently joined as account director.

The company has also hired two graduate account executives, both of whom worked with the company during their placement years. Emily Badger joins from Bournemouth University, while Becky Halliwell has recently finished her studies at Sheffield Hallam University. 

"We’ve experienced another great year of continuous growth thanks to our focus on key account management," said Nick Robinson, managing director of Concerto Live. 

"We’ve also brought on some exciting new telecoms and technology clients, all of which have contributed to our need to expand the team and office. Our people and culture have always been some of our biggest assets at Concerto Live, so it’s fair to say that we don’t take recruitment lightly - we take the time to find people with the skills, drive and personality that our clients expect from us.

"We’re thrilled to be attracting people of the calibre of Clare and Lynn. I’m also delighted to see our investment in new talent is paying off now that both Becky and Emily have decided to return to us after completing their degrees. They both had excellent placement years and we’re excited by the energy and passion they have for everything we do."
