Alana Buchanan, previously with Alpha Financial – a Black Tomato Agency client, joins as business development manager.  Lauren Anthony, previously with AYMTM, has been appointed to the role of senior project manager and Oliver Launn who formerly worked at agency Clive, joins as proposal writer.

Grant left Black Tomato to build a location-based app business - an idea that was born out of his experiences in travel and events and something he feels will benefit and enhance the MICE industry. It will be launching later in the year.

This most recent wave of hires is in line with Black Tomato’s intent to hire creative talent from varied backgrounds in order to provide clients with the most up to date experiences available.

Following wins in the automotive and tech Sectors, Black Tomato is  currently developing several new products to ‘create remarkable experiences that inspire’.

Commenting on the team restructure, David Heron, head of sales at The Black Tomato Agency said: "We have experienced a significant increase in quality projects over the past 12 months and having the professional expertise of Alana, Lauren and Oliver in the team will really help us continue to grow and deliver exceptional experiences for our clients."
