Veltman was previously based in South Africa running his own event agency, Velti. He has delivered projects across the African continent for global brands including Sony PlayStation, SAP, Vodafone, MTV, SAB Miller, MINI and LG.

The appointment of Simpson and Veltman comes as Vista continues to expand internationally, growing its communications campaigns and events offering within the financial, technology and automotive sector. While Veltman will work closely with managing director James Wilkins to grow the agency’s business, Simpson will focus on the delivery of Vista’s events.

Wilkins said: "Following the rebrand we have been looking for talent that has the skill to assist and lead international growth with the ability to excel our core on a local and national level. Both Paul and Nicholas have this skillset and both are an asset to the expanding Vista team."
