Meetings and event management agency Banks Sadler has recruited Julien Smith as global account director.
Smith joins with over 10 years’ experience within the industry and has worked previously at the creative experiential agencies TBA, M-is, and IVORY Worldwide. He also has experience from sectors including travel (Reed & Mackay) and finance (Media Tree), and across a wide range of clients including HP, MasterCard and Orange.
Smith will be working alongside three of Banks Sadler’s key clients in the transport, aviation and engineering industries, helping them drive strategic growth and new opportunities within their meetings and events programme.
Smith said he was “excited to be a part of such a well-established and well-respected agency. I love the culture and spirit of the company and I look forward to growing these exciting accounts and delivering Banks Sadler’s full range of in-house services”.
Caron Livens, appointed earlier this year as global sales director, added that Smith brought “a depth and breadth of experience that will further strengthen our account development team and support the growth and evolution of our client relationships”.
The latest hire follows the appointment earlier this year, also, of Ali Nazarboland as head of development and three new hires within the agency’s production department.
