Welcome Financial Services' head of events Natalie Gasson is to leave the company after two years in the position.
 
"I was brought in to ring the changes with the events programme and I'm now satisfied that has been achieved, so it is time for a new challenge," Gasson told C&IT.
 
She says she is currently looking at a number of opportunities, but is definitely planning to remain in the events industry, possibly in an agency role. Gasson's last day at Welcome is 10 October and the company is now in the process of finding a replacement.
 
During Gasson's tenure, Welcome's events schedule increased from seven to 15 events annually. Although the only specific events employee at the firm, Gasson worked in conjunction with Welcome's five-strong internal communications team.
