Nick Aitken now holds the post of head of product development and Sheridan Roberts takes on the role of head of events. Both Aitken and Roberts have previously featured in the C&IT's coveted A List and have since continued to forge their events careers with Wildgoose.

Joining Wildgoose back in May 2010 as a freelancer, Roberts soon moved up the ranks to become a senior project and events manager. Aitken joined a few years later in April 2014 taking on the same role to support Wildgoose as it continued to grow from five members of staff to 35 today.

Commenting on the promotions, operations director, Peter Barker said: "Both Nick and Sheridan have played a pivotal role in helping Wildgoose grow and evolve over the years. Their contribution to the operational side of the business, which has included everything from product development through to client liaison and event delivery means that they are perfectly placed to help take the operations team to the next level.

"The client brief has changed a great deal in the past year and we’ve seen a big shift away from traditional team building towards more complex and purposeful events. Realigning Nick and Sheridan’s roles and recognising their expertise ensures we are equipped to continue developing our suite of products in response to this shift, and to fulfill these more complex briefs."
