The Event Business has expanded with two new appointments following account wins with Jaguar.

The agency's turnover has grown from £3.9m in the year ending March 2008 to £4.5m in March 2009. Pre-tax profits grew from £265,000 to £490,000 for the same period.

Account wins with Jaguar, Land Rover and the South West of England Regional Development Agency have helped boost business, said commercial and client services director David Bland.

"We are doing more work with Jaguar now than ever before," he added.

Skandia also added the agency to its event supplier roster in November 2008.

Bland said: "We are confident we have enough business to need extra staff and there are good people out there at the moment."

Ruth Nisbet has replaced Mike Green as event manager, and Sapna Parma has joined as graphic and creative designer, bringing the total staff to nine.
