Creative communications agency, Top Banana, has just announced that Andrew Winterburn has joined the team as a non-executive director.
Bringing with him over 30 years’ experience in the event industry, Andrew’s role at Top Banana will be to guide and support the leadership team and business strategy to help drive the agency forward.
With his vast experience in building and growing businesses, Andrew will play an instrumental role in the business’s future strategy, having already worked in collaboration with the agency to create their current five-year growth plan. He will help mentor the team and challenge the way they do things by adding an external, objective view and advice.
Andrew commented: “I’ve worked with Richard (Bridge) and other members of the Top Banana leadership team for around 18 months now and we found we worked really well together. My role is to help support and guide the team and ensure they are taking a step back and look at things with a different viewpoint to help them shape the successful future of the company.
“I love being part of a vibrant and dynamic business that has values that I can personally associate with. Top Banana are going through a really exciting time and I can’t wait to be part of their continued growth and success.”
In 2019, Top Banana grew its team to over 60 employees across its three offices in the Midlands, London and Manchester. Whilst celebrating its milestone birthday of 20 years, Top Banana has also celebrated winning multiple awards including the much-coveted titles of C&IT & EVCOM Agency of the year.
Founder and CEO, Richard Bridge, added: “As a business we’ve really taken a step forward in 2019. We’re in a really great position, not just financially, but in terms of our client relationships and growing expert team.
“Welcoming Andrew onboard is a really exciting step for us. Having worked with myself and the leadership team for a number of months already, we have really seen the value he brings to the business. We now have someone to challenge us and help drive us forward in all areas of the business. We can’t wait to see where this journey takes us and for Andrew to play a part in that.”
