Savill joins the Manchester-based agency as part of its growth strategy across its key channels of live events, video production, digital and design. His appointment comes on the back of a number of new client wins.

At HGA, Savill will be directly responsible for directing and delivering the agency’s sales and marketing strategies. He joins from WRG, where he worked for almost nine years as director of business development.

Savill said: "It’s a great feeling joining such a talented and respected team. Clients want to work with agencies like HGA because its people are so committed to each project and they produce fantastic results. It’s this reputation that will give us the platform to help achieve our ambitions."

Savill’s appointment sees Gemma McCall move to the role of head of client services, where she will focus on nurturing and growing HGA’s existing account relationships.

Dan Laurence, MD of HGA, said: "Andrew brings with him a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record and we are simply delighted to have him on board. His experience, passion and determination will be a huge asset to the business and we are excited about the opportunities ahead.

"In Gemma and Andrew we have two experienced business development professionals who complement each other really well and will help us achieve our ambitions.

"At the heart of every great business are great people and these roles further strengthen our hugely talented team, ensuring we continue our commitment to deliver extraordinary results for our clients."
