The twelve new appointments come as a result of high-profile account wins for Banks Sadler in 2015 and are across the accounts development, marketing and finance departments.

Among the twelve new hires, Dominic Bemrose has joined Banks Sadler from WRG as global account director. He will be responsible for relationship management and driving efficiencies across a specific portfolio of contracted accounts. Bemrose spent nearly two years as client director at WRG and has also worked for TFI Group in the past. He brings with him more than 18 years of experience in logistics, marketing and account development.

Harriette Wilmoth has been appointed as marketing manager, joining from global marketing communications agency OMD. She will be responsible for managing delivery of the marketing plan across the Banks Sadler international footprint.

Claire Leech has joined as account director and will be based in the York office. Her role will consist of building a number of key existing client relationships and identifying where there are new opportunities for growth. Leech comes with 14 years of industry experience.

They follow the appointment earlier this year at Banks Sadler of global development director, Robert Kenward, who was brought in to increase the agency’s global portfolio and develop new business streams across the agency's existing client base, with a particular focus on their Asia Pacific reach.

Banks Sadler CEO Leigh Jagger said: "We are delighted to be growing our talent pool at such a significant rate. These new appointments reflect a very busy 2015 for event management across all our global offices, coupled with the continuing growth in demand for our production and event technology services.

"This team expansion is creating even more solid foundations for the Banks Sadler brand and we are confident that they will help to continue this upward financial growth trend into 2016 and beyond."
