Peter Bost (pictured) is to lead a new events division at ATPI Group as the result of a corporate restructure.
Bost, an ATPI management team stalwart, will take on the newly created role as head of global events. He will direct strategy and lead a 120-strong events division which has offices in Greece, France, India, Australia, Hong Kong, the USA as well as the Netherlands and UK.
ATPI is one of the largest events operations in Europe and is behind the travel, logistics and corporate hospitality of national teams at the summer and winter Olympics, 2015 Rugby World Cup and last year’s successful Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
CEO of the ATPI Group, Graham Ramsey said: “The development of our events operation and the appointment of Peter Bost is a strategic decision to ensure we continue to lead the events market on a global scale.”
Commenting on his new role, Bost said: “As part of a larger global company we have access to specialist events teams in key locations around the world, and the opportunity to both grow our portfolio as well as applying our knowledge of the complex logistics required for major international tournaments to corporate event and incentive requirements. It is a very exciting time for our business.”
The new role follows the ATPI Group’s acquisition of international travel business Griffin at the end of 2014, and enhancements to the management structure of the overall group made in 2015.
