Top Banana is moving to new offices in The Leather Market in Bermondsey, London.

Co-founder Richard Bridge said: "We’ve taken on several new clients based in London, so growing our office here in the capital means we can service those clients more effectively. The Leather Market is an awesome place which really reflects the Top Banana brand and gives us space to grow in the future. The London team utilises the experienced graphics, venue finding and film / editing services at our Midlands head office, but are on hand for clients at the drop of a hat."

The move comes as Bridge takes over full ownership of the company.

Head of the London office, Jez Audus added: "From a recruitment perspective, being in London has opened up a new pool of talent which gives us access to some of the best event professionals in the industry, like our new recruits Katy and Alicia."

Katy Cushen has joined as senior account manager and brings a wealth of experience including delivering events across three continents. In her most recent role she spent four years working on Mobile World Congress, an event for over 100,000 people from the world of mobile communications in the city of Barcelona.

Also new is Alicia Pearson who joins as account manager. In her last role, she worked on a major activation at Cannes Lions 2016 which was held on a superyacht and involved everything from client hospitality, production, staffing, content delivery, ground transportation and talent management.

Bridge commented: "It really is an exciting time for Top Banana. The business is flourishing and has a growing reputation for delivering amazing events for great brands – a reputation we’ve proud of. We’re looking forward to continued growth in the months ahead and this new London office will help us to provide the kind of service our clients have come to expect from us."
