Marc Hazelden has joined events agency Top Banana as an account director. He brings 15 years of experience in the automotive, retail, finance, technology and food and drink sectors.
Hazelden has worked across most kinds of live event, from activations, launches and roadshows, to awards, press and training events. Most recently he was at Manchester-based agency Fresh. He says: “Top Banana has had a great year, with lots of new business wins and a steadily growing team. The company’s compelling values were a big attraction for me, along with its excellent reputation in the business and strong entrepreneurial spirit. It’s a great opportunity to work alongside a team of really experienced event professionals and develop my own skills.”
Agency creative director and co-founder Richard Bridge adds: “It’s always invigorating to welcome new members to the team. Whether they’re experienced or new to the industry, they always bring a fresh perspective and new ideas, which we thrive on. Marc is a great fit, combining a real understanding of some of our clients’ industries with expertise in other sectors that will add to the pot and expand our overall capabilities.”
Stourbridge-based Top Banana’s clients include Barclaycard, Bentley, Danone and Whitbread.
