Technical event staging services company Blitz|GES has promoted two of its senior team, Carol Gibbs and Mark Watson, to newly created roles as the business plans for growth in 2017.
The company says the appointments are part of a new structure that is designed to support “a robust pipeline for the year ahead”.
Gibbs takes on responsibility for the company’s growing venue portfolio in the newly created role of director of venues, while Watson is promoted to creative director with a brief to expand Blitz|GES’ reputation for design.
Blitz|GES has preferred technical production partner status with many UK venues and recently won official status for the new Hall 1 at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, due to open in 2018.
Watson’s elevation to creative director is an extension of his current role and reinforces what Blitz|GES describes as its business differentiator: combining technical knowledge with high-quality creative all from a single account team.
Both Gibbs and Watson will report directly into Blitz|GES managing director, Paul Hutton.
“For more than 25 years Blitz|GES has been recognised as one of the most creative providers of technical event services in the industry – a reputation that is entirely due to the talent and creativity of our team,” says Hutton. “I’m delighted to see Carol and Mark take on new, expanded roles. They both bring a wealth of experience, technical expertise and creativity that will add genuine value to our clients and partners.”
