Anthony Hyde, former General Manager of the Barbican’s business events team, has been appointed Managing Director of Trinity Event Solutions and takes up the post from January 2015.
The Lincolnshire-based agency’s founder and owner Jacqui Kavanagh says Hyde will take over the day-to-day running of the business.
“Anthony is the perfect fit for Trinity,” says Kavanagh. “He brings a wealth of industry experience, contacts and knowledge to the role as well as a fresh eye. Trinity has gone from strength to strength since we started in 2006. Anthony joins us off the back of the most successful trading period in the company’s history, making it the perfect time to seek out new opportunities and grow further. We look forward to the impact his creativity and leadership skills will bring to company.”
As part of the management restructure, Kavanagh takes on the role of CEO, allowing her to focus on special projects, her position as Chair of the HBAA and the long-term strategic direction of Trinity Event Solutions.
“I have been a long-time admirer and fan of both Jacqui and Trinity Event Solutions,” says Hyde, who has been running his own consultancy since leaving the Barbican last year.
“I fundamentally believe that success is built on the development of great relationships and there is no denying the whole team’s skills in this area and their commitment to ongoing growth in their venue and destination knowledge. I look forward to taking on my new role in January, working with the whole of their dedicated team and developing Trinity Event Solutions for years to come.”
Trinity has 30 staff and clients including venuefinder.com, Bauer Consumer and Leo Pharma. The agency’s unaudited 2013/2014 accounts reflected an 11 per cent increase in turnover and a 22 per cent increase in profitability.
