With live meetings and events back in full swing across the globe post pandemic, touch associates have today announced the appointment of Charlie Litchfield as their new Director, Americas.
touch’s US operation, touch associates USA Inc, based in Princeton, New Jersey was set up in 2015 and has steadily grown providing US domestic and global meetings and events services for many of touch’s global clients, especially their pharmaceutical client base many of which are based in the NJ area.
The newly created role will oversee all of the North American operations of touch with a strong focus on further expanding touch’s US domestic client base.
David Bottrill, Joint Managing Director and Board Director of touch said “The US is an incredibly important market for us and it has always been our ambition to create a US presence and offering that provides our global and US domestic clients the same full service capability we offer from the UK. With live meetings and events making a strong return throughout 2022, and a number of US client wins, we took the decision to invest even further in our US operation to accelerate our growth strategy and we are delighted that Charlie has accepted the challenge to help us do that”
