New account directors and a retail SMMP for Grass Roots M&E

Grass Roots Meetings & Events division has promoted both Philippa Murray and Nicola Cunningham to account directors in the wake of business growth, including a global Strategic Meetings Management Programme for a major retailer.

The agency says it is also to provide venue sourcing for training facilities for a leading financial services firm.

Murray, who has risen through the ranks during an eight-year career at Grass Roots M&E, will now take the lead for clients across the energy, banking and professional services sectors.

“Grass Roots provides a unique working environment with fresh challenges every day,” she said. “The opportunity to have a more strategic approach, working with a diverse range of people to deliver creative solutions for clients is something I truly enjoy.”

She added that she was “looking forward to working closely with clients as we move towards a more integrated global approach to events, delivering complete services across not just the Meetings and Event division but the whole of the Grass Roots Group”.

Cunningham, meanwhile, moved from a role focused on negotiation with key hotel partners for large financial events, to an account management role based in Putney three years ago, and now becomes an account director.
