Live experience agency HGA has welcomed two new team members, Paul Basson and Becci Stuart.

Basson joins HGA in a new role as relationship manager, having spent 19 years working in creative agencies across the north west, on a range of accounts including Electronic Arts, the NHS, Shell and 3M Healthcare. He will be responsible for developing HGA’s client relationships and looking at further ways the business can offer support through its range of services.

Stuart also joins in a new role, as social media, PR and marketing manager. She will be dedicated to celebrating the work of HGA from live events and innovative technology to creative and filmmaking. Becci comes from a PR and copywriting background, having worked with creative businesses in Manchester and publishing houses in London.

Dan Laurence, managing director at HGA, said: "Being an agency so focused on delivering an exceptional experience for our clients, means we are left with very little time to shout about ourselves - Becci will change this. I cannot imagine anyone better suited to this role and already her positive impact is being felt.

"Paul’s proven track record of nurturing and growing accounts makes him the ideal candidate to help us offer a broader, more rounded service to our clients and I am excited to welcome both to our talented team as we continue to drive forwards."

Stuart added: "From the moment I walked through the door, I could feel the excitement at HGA. Each department is buzzing with ideas, from the huge events planned for this autumn to the technology pioneers working on some very cool projects. I cannot wait to start revealing what goes on behind the scenes at HGA, so watch this space."
