New senior account manager for Top Banana

Natalie Benson joins from ACA Live and will work on finance, automotive and retail accounts.

Creative communications agency Top Banana has welcomed Natalie Benson to its growing team as a senior account manager.

Benson will be working on accounts in the finance, automotive and retail sectors and will be based in London.

Having graduated from the UK Centre for Events Management, Benson now has 12 years’ industry experience under her belt. She joins from agency ACA Live, where she worked as a senior project manager for five and a half years.

"One of the reasons I joined Top Banana was because they are known for being great investors in their employees," said Benson.

"They have such a wide range of clients I knew I’d be challenged, working on different projects that push my expertise."

Jez Audus, client services director, added: "As our London team continues to grow we needed to hire someone who could get stuck into our accounts with passion and creativity. Natalie is the right fit for this – her experience in the field is going to bring us a new lease of life and we know she’s going to wow both our existing and prospective clients".
