Paul Stoddart has taken up the role of MD for CWT Meetings & Events, UK, IE & Benelux. Stoddart began in the role on 3 January, reporting directly into Ian Cummings, whose role has expanded to vice president of the EMEA region.
Paul will lead and direct all M&E business activity across the UK, Ireland and Benelux, providing leadership and strategic direction with a heavy focus on continuing the growth and progress CWT Meetings & Events has seen over the last few years.
On Stoddart’s new position, Cummings said: “Paul is a strong leader with over 20 years M&E experience. After another strong year in 2016 with wins across many industry sectors, his broad experience is just what we need to keep our live events and SMM programmes ahead of the pack.”
Stoddart himself added: “What attracted me to CWT Meetings & Events was its excellent reputation in the industry for managing large, high profile events seamlessly while ensuring the customer experience is always fresh and innovative. For a relatively young agency, CWT Meetings & Events is one of the top global names and I’m very much looking forward to seeing how far we can go in 2017 and beyond.”
