George Salmond has joined the Principal team as senior project manager. He will provide additional support for the operations team with new and existing key accounts.

Salmond has previously worked for Grass Roots and Maritz Travel, organising meetings and events for a variety of client accounts, especially in the pharmaceutical and automotive sectors. He has spent the last five years working with international clients in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Fiona Liu has also joined Principal as finance account manager, where she will support the finance department and help manage new supplier contracts in Asia. Liu has been working in the financial services sector in London for the past five years and brings experience working with Asian suppliers and taxation regulations.

Takis Kyprianou, director of Principal, said: "We are very happy to welcome George and Fiona to the Principal family. George’s experience in events management and Portuguese language skills will only complement and enhance the current Principal Team. Fiona is also a great new addition to the team and a huge asset to our finance department.

"With George and Fiona on board, we are very proud to say that our multilingual team has the capabilities to work with clients in Portuguese, Chinese, Spanish, and Greek and our collective global experience means we can deliver more, as well as bigger and better events for our clients in Asia and Latin America in the near future."
