With a growth of 340% over the past five years, managing director Jonny Edser said the company had seen a rise in demand for events across the globe. "Around 80% of our events are UK based, however we are seeing a big shift with requests for events overseas becoming more and more frequent and the decision to open offices outside of the UK is a natural next step for us to accelerate this growth."

He added: "We have been working in US cities for years and our events have always proved to be a popular solution. The timing is perfect for Wildgoose to continue to build on the global success we have had to date with the opening of a New York City office. "

Gemma Smith, who starred in the 2016 C&IT A list, will head up the sales side of the New York City office as VP business development, alongside Lucinda Bianchi who takes up the post of general manager, operations. 

The agency has recently expanded its team in the UK office, with the appointment of seven new team members.
