Unicorn Events makes senior hire in USA

New senior project manager will work with the agency's US clients from the New York office.

Following a recent move to 450 Lexington Avenue in New York City, Unicorn Events is continuing its US expansion. 

New senior project manager, Zachary Tranter will head up projects for the agency’s US clients.

Tranter recently joined the agency from a government position with the Consulate General of Canada in New York, as the head of events and visits, and has more than 10 years of experience in the MICE industry.

Tranter said: "I am thrilled to bring my experience in logistics, catering, venue operations, events and brand design to our corporate clients in the US as well as providing support to the team in our UK office." 

The agency’s managing director, Hannah Luffman, said: "Zachary comes with a really broad range of experience but most importantly he has incredible project expertise alongside being a great fit for our US-based clients and events.

"It has been an incredible year of not only increasing our EMEA offering for our US-based clients but seeing huge growth in the domestic market."

Tranter’s appointment follows two new hires in the UK Unicorn office in September 2019. Alice Cosso joined as project coordinator and Joseph Charlton joined as project director.
