WRG US has hired Greg Kiner as head of live events and executive producer. He will also lead the division's most complex and production-heavy projects in the US.
Kiner will work alongside WRG UK head of live events Tim Collett to line-manage the US team and support the growth of its live event offering to new and existing clients.
Collett said: "Greg is a real talent to have in the team. With a wealth of experience across sectors and disciplines, he will make a huge difference to the team."
Kiner joins WRG from Axcess Worldwide, where he was senior director for experiential and events.
"My focus is to lead the US Live production team to more success as we continue to grow," said Kiner. "It is an exciting time to be joining WRG and I am honoured to partner with people who share my passion for live events and production."
Before his last role, Kiner was an executive producer at Jack Morton for two years.
During the last 16 years, he has produced experiential initiatives for global brands such as Heineken, Ritz Carlton and Amazon.
