Freeman has added seven new faces to its digital team to bolster its digital capabilities in EMEA.

The company has recently secured new partnerships with top organisers including British Marine Boat Shows, the Federation of European Screen Printers Associations (FESPA), the NHS Confederation and the Antiquarian Book Sellers’ Association.

Adam Jones, director, digital products at Freeman in EMEA, said: "Just six months into the launch of our digital products division, we’ve gone from strength to strength, securing a number of new clients and strengthening relationships with existing organisers."

Tom Vamos has been appointed digital development manager, responsible for managing the development team. He will also act as the ‘scrum master,’ leading the product specialists to work in an agile way while ensuring they are aligned and equipped to adapt to change quickly.

Two software developers have also joined this team. Andrew Joubert will focus his efforts on the company’s Showplans suite of floor plan products, while Mircea Matasaru is responsible for the Exhibition Architect online manual tool.

James Hemmings has been appointed senior floor plan account manager. Hemmings will lead the floor plan architect team and act as the first point of contact for clients with floor plan design queries.

The digital support department has grown by two. Felicity Collen, formerly of etouches, joins as client success manager to oversee the team and provide support across the entire product portfolio. Joining from GES, Harriett Handley has been appointed to the role of support specialist, responsible for supporting clients who use the Exhibition Architect online manual tool in particular.

Andrew Webb has also come onboard as digital business development specialist, responsible for taking Freeman digital products to a wider event audience. He brings nearly 15 years’ experience in national account management to the business, and has worked at brands including Breville, Le Creuset and most recently Bosch.

To better accommodate the growing team and its rapidly expanding portfolio of clients, the digital division has also moved into newly renovated offices in Farnborough.
