Events Raccoon hires new event manager

Emma Sharp joins agency world after events experience with Cartier and The Dorchester.

The Events Raccoon has recently appointed Emma Sharp as event manager to support with their growing events programme. 

Sharp comes from a strong events background, with six years at The Dorchester and a further three years with Cartier.

"When I saw the opportunity to become part of The Events Raccoon, I knew this was the role for me – to be part of a growing company that creates unique experiences for their clients," she said.

"Once I met with Beckie [Hyson, director of The Events Raccoon] I realised the full potential in which I could play such an important role in helping to grow the business."    

Hyson added: "We couldn’t have asked for a better year having delivered a staggering 25 events, up 19 from the previous year.

"We pride ourselves on providing a personal, dedicated and bespoke full-service event solution and I’m excited that Emma has joined the team to help us enhance our service."

The Events Raccoon is celebrating a second year in which it produced 25 UK and worldwide events, had four new client wins and expanded its team. Among the client wins in 2018, were Trace One and CAMSS World.
