Pure Events promotes new director
Pure Events has announced that Joanna Stachowicz (main picture) has been appointed as client services director.
Company bosses say Stachowicz has been a valued member of the Pure Events team for seven years after starting as an events assistant shadowing senior members of the team. Since then Stachowicz has worked her way up the ladder to events manager and then senior events manager and now finally Stachowicz has earned her place at the director’s table.
As the longest standing member of the Pure Events team, Stachowicz knows all the clients well and so is in the perfect position to fulfil this new and exciting role. Jo has worked on events spanning from global partner retreats in Europe for 500 people through to a corporate festival in the UK for 850 people and understands client service perfectly.
Her new role will enable her to continue to deepen her relationships with the clients at Pure Events as well as take a more strategic role in the growth of the accounts. Stachowicz’s role will also involve helping to mentor the team and develop their own client strategies.
“I am very excited about this opportunity,”, said Stachowicz. “Although I am little nervous about the responsibility that this role will give me, I am really driven to work with the team to bring out the best in all of us, act as a mentor to the wider team and continue to grow our client accounts. I have been very operationally involved so far but this new role will help me to grow my commercial skillset and relationship-building acumen”
Joanna has not just earnt the respect of the team due to her phenomenal growth and operational proven track record, but she has also been an immense support to Charlotte Gentry, CEO and Founder of Pure Events over the last seven years, as well as in recent years to Milo Gabric, managing director of Pure Events.
“We are proud of what Joanna has achieved in her seven years at Pure Event. Her commitment to the company has been unwavering even in tough times and her drive to achieve has been exceptional,” says Charlotte Gentry, CEO, Pure Events. “We are really excited to have elevated Jo into this position as she has commercial prowess which is instinctive to her and we know she will excel in this role.”
Further, Pure Events has expanded its team with the appointment of Emma Reavley (pictured below) as events coordinator.
Reavley has a degree in Event Management from Leeds University which has stood her in good stead when it comes to the administrational side of events planning as well as venue sourcing and creative event design.
Additionally, Reavley has a wealth of experience in the industry already having worked for Create Food & Party Design, Quintessentially and as a freelancer for a number of agencies and corporate clients in the events world.
Reavley will be working on a varied number of client accounts at Pure Events and will be mentored by Stachowicz and Gabric.
