Formerly executive producer at Jack Morton, the appointment will see Collett lead all output from WRG’s UK live events team. Collett has spent over 11 years working on events for global brands Samsung, P&G and Lexus. His remit will involve line management responsibility for the live events team reporting to operations director Tim Williams. He will also join the WRG management team.

Collett said: "One of the most exciting aspects to this role is that it will see me move from operational production to leader and mentor. I’ll be working with the team to help fulfil their potential and I’m looking forward to seeing everything that goes out and making my mark."

Asked about the move from Jack Morton to WRG, Collett added "I have always been a fan of WRG but this is a great opportunity to join the business at such an exciting stage in its history. It’s going places and it’s growing as a business. There are exciting opportunities within The Creative Engagement Group and a feeling of momentum." "It feels like a great place for the next stage in my career and I can’t wait to get started."

Russ Lidstone, CEO WRG and The Creative Engagement Group added: "Tim is hugely talented and has a wealth of experience, having worked on countless projects from corporate events to some of the UK’s biggest public spectacles." "Alongside his obvious talent, Tim’s focus on creativity, delivery and engaging end users means he is a brilliant fit for WRG and The Creative Engagement Group. Importantly he’s definitely ‘one of us’ – a top man."
