The agency, which recorded a turnover of £4.5m last year, is in its 20th year in business and is fuelling the biggest projected growth in its history with its large, recent recruitment drive.

Its event management team has expanded with two new additions. Hannah Barker, who previously worked for EED and Firebird Events, has joined in the role of event manager. Anna Kislingbury has also joined as event executive. 

The agency’s sales and marketing department has seen the addition of Chloe Zebedee as marketing manager, while Cara-Beth Bennett and Chris Watson both joined as business development executives.

Tristan Norman, who joined Corporate Events in the summer of 2015 as head of sales, has recently been promoted to director of sales and marketing.

The agency has also expanded its creative and technical teams, with Autumn Townsend joining the studio as graphic designer, while Stephen Minty joined in January as an animator. The warehouse team has expanded with the addition of Ashley Freeman.

Andy Ashley, managing director of Corporate Events, said: The key to our success has always been about building a strong ‘customer centric’ business and developing teams who are passionate about event production. We are delighted to be celebrating 20 years in 2016 and will continue to provide exceptional service and new innovation going forward."
