London-based event management and venue-finding agency Banks Sadler has appointed three new recruits within its production team as the company reports new client wins and continued expansion.
Two producers, and an event technology manager join the agency’s creative team.
Tatjana Gohlich joins as event technology manager, and will be helping to drive product development of Banks Sadler’s proprietary technology solution, Engage. Gohlich joins from the event technology company Duuzra, where she worked alongside companies including Deutsche Bank, Adidas, and Credit Suisse.
The other appointments include Luke Power joining as a producer from Crown, where he worked as a project manager delivering events and campaigns for brands including Sony, Microsoft, Peugeot Citroën and Barclays. His remit will be to develop innovative live events across a variety of Banks Sadler’s clients, including Janssen and Santander.
Rachel Jones also joins as a producer, and will be working with agency clients including JLL, GSK and Fidelity International. Jones, who has seven years’ experience in the industry, joins from Grass Roots, where she worked as a producer with clients including Danone and WPP.
Jon Coventry, director of the agency’s production department says of the new hires: “We are delighted to be expanding. These new appointments reflect our ability to provide both a full service offering and engaging and innovative solutions for our clients. We have had a significant increase in demand for our creative production services and it’s fantastic to have Tatjana, Luke and Rachel join our team to help strengthen this ever-growing offering.”
The latest appointments follow on appointments this year that saw the senior leadership team expanded with the hire of Ali Nazarboland as head of development, and Caron Livens as global sales director. The business also reported a sixth year of growth and is optimistic for a seventh year of growth in 2016.
