Chillisauce, which currently features in the top 10 of C&IT’s top 50 UK agencies list, is reporting a year-on-year 17% rise in team building and corporate event bookings so far in 2017.

Gary Fletcher, Charlotte Franks, Chris Smith, Hannah Spinks and Georgia Gale all join the company's corporate events department, where they will be responsible for delivering events for blue chip clients across the UK and Europe including Deloitte, Microsoft and JTI.

Fletcher previously worked as senior event manager for Demon Wheelers before working at events agency Wildfire and joins with over nine years’ experience within the events industry.

Franks graduated from Leeds Beckett in 2007 with a meetings and event planning degree, before working in the events and sales industry for over eight years, both in the UK and internationally.

Having worked in the graphic arts industry as an events and account manager for over 15 years, Smith brings with him a wide array of experience, organising concerts, festivals and product launches for clients including Samsung, Ted Baker and Omnicom.

Event management graduates Spinks and Gale have both worked within event management and sales for over three years before joining the team.

Commenting on the expansion, James Diment, head of corporate events at Chillisauce, said: "After another record-breaking year in turnover last year, Chillisauce is continuing to grow at a rapid pace, and we’re committed to investing in the right professionals to engage with the high-calibre of clients we work with as we move into our next exciting phase. We can only deliver amazing events with amazing people, and we’re very pleased to already have five exceptional new account managers on board as a part of that."
