LiveBuzz, the award-winning event registration, website and staffing provider, continues to grow in 2017, with a raft of new appointments having increased the size of its workforce by over 10% in just four months.
The two most recent recruits, Jaimee Le Resche and Erika Dean, both joined the company in March. Their appointments, coming hard on the heels of the arrivals of Nadim Islam, James Mills and Kristian Philips in December and January, have swelled the LiveBuzz ranks to 45 people, spread across its Coventry and London offices.
In addition, LiveBuzz has entered into a partnership with The Content Equation, a Birmingham-based content agency, to boost its communications and content activity.
Jaimee Le Resche has joined the LiveBuzz team as an Events Registration Manager (ERM), having previously worked as a freelance account manager for Spark44, an automotive marketing agency.
With four years of experience in events and marketing, Jaimee now joins her five fellow ERMs in providing clients with a day-to-day point of contact, working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the preparations for every event are as smooth as possible.
Erika Dean has joined LiveBuzz as an Exhibitor Services Coordinator and will be responsible for assisting exhibitors on the ground at the various events and conferences within the LiveBuzz client portfolio.
Erika graduated from Coventry University with a first-class degree in events management and joined LiveBuzz from Enterprise Rent-a-Car where she was part of their graduate management scheme.
Commenting on the appointments, Justin Craig, founder and joint managing director at LiveBuzz, said: “LiveBuzz’s extraordinary growth continues and we now boast a portfolio of over 30 of the UK’s most prestigious event organisers, delivering in excess of 140 events and conferences across the globe. Servicing such a diverse range of clients requires a strong and capable workforce to which Jaimee, Erika, Nadim, James and Kris will be welcome additions.”
The partnership arrangement with The Content Equation will see Justin renewing acquaintances with Simon Griffiths, director of The Content Equation after the two worked together at KPMG in the late 90s. The former colleagues have come together to boost LiveBuzz’s profile, with a particular focus on industry insight and opinion.
