Formerly senior health and safety advisor for event agency Imagination where he worked with Shell, Ford and Jaguar Land Rover, Alex Wood will audit current processes and streamline them across the group.

Wood’s role will also involve working with WRG and The Creative Engagement Group’s suppliers to ensure a robust supply chain. The new role will report to director of operations Tim Williams.

Russ Lidstone CEO of The Creative Engagement Group said: "It has never been more important for our industry to have the right health and safety measures in place and for us as a company to adhere to the highest standards.

"Alex joining our team at WRG demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement in this area".

WRG was recently acquired by Huntsworth as part of a £25m deal.
