TFI expands team with new hires

Events agency TFI Group has expanded its team by six, and signed an eight-year extension to its office lease in Victoria.

New staff to join the agency include Eija Hakkinen and Gema Rodriguez, who have joined in senior roles to oversee the management of the agency’s largest conference programmes. Meanwhile, Billy Fahey has joined as partnerships director, Rosalys Bryan and Isabel Watson have joined as project managers in the event management team and Omi Adjekukor has come on board as project executive in the DMS team.

Director Rob Roffey said: "With our lease coming up for renewal, we naturally looked at all options, however, with a team of 35 commuting from all areas of London, as well as Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hertfordshire, staying in Victoria was the obvious choice and we’re excited by the opportunities this period of stability will bring. In addition to the new social infrastructure the area will provide for our staff, we are hopeful it will enable us to continue attracting the best talent wanting to work for a progressive central London agency."

TFI has also increased its intern programme for 2016/17, taking on Noemi La Torre and Abigail Moulds for 12-month placements.
