Industry stalwart Maier was with TFI Group for four years, and prior to that worked at Grassroots Eventcom, with a short stint at MCM Creative Group.

Maier commented: "TFI has been a fascinating experience. However, the time is absolutely right for me to move on and embrace this exciting opportunity of working with Mark and Visual Response.

"This is an excellent opportunity. Visual Response has such a superb track record as an event services agency, has been around for over 25 years and totally understands what clients want - and need."

Waters added: "Clients want trust, sense, exemplary planning, powerful ideas and great delivery - and they want people to translate their needs into a memorable reality. Simon will help grow our ability to do that. He brings with him many years of experience in every aspect of event and strategic creativity, as well as understanding the depth and scope of client needs.

"His writing, proposal creativity, presentation technique and getting to the heart of the matter are legend and I'm delighted that he's agreed to join us exactly at a time when we're looking for growth."
