The Yorkshire-based agency has created a number of strategic senior roles as a result of its continued growth, which includes a recent two-year contract win worth £2m with "a new global medical equipment manufacturer".

Speaking about YES’s successful year, CEO Sue Gill said: "We’ve entered our 18th year of business stronger than ever thanks to a recent exciting company restructure. We’re forecasting a further 30% growth. I’m excited to see what the future for YES holds, it’s a fantastic place to be right now.

"The continued loyalty and hard work of team YES underlines this along with a number of significant contract wins, including a recent 400-delegate beauty science conference in Ibiza."

Among the new senior talent to join YES is Laura Hodges, who is taking up the role of creative director. She will be responsible for creative content solutions for the agency’s existing clients and new business pitches, with a focus on live events, marketing campaigns and incentive travel.

Laura is joined by Leanne Roys, who will be director at YES’s Switzerland office near Zurich. Roys has previously worked at in the global commercial team at Takeda Pharmaceuticals and before that ran over 100 major congresses a year for Medical Societies. 

Kim Rowling also moves to YES from fashion brand Jimmy Choo to become executive assistant to YES CEO and founder, Sue Gill. 

Rowling takes the number of new recruits to join the agency over the past 12 months to eight with further recruitment underway to support the growth of a Philadelphia office in July this year.
