Unicorn Events confirms expansion
Unicorn Events has expanded its team after reporting record growth both within its current client base and seeing significant new business wins for the creative brand experience agency. Those joining the creative brand experience agency include Pete Starling (pictured left) as senior designer and Edward Hoskins (pictured right) as business development manager.
Starling joins from a career where his design and creative work has been employed for exhibitions, events and as a concept artist for the film industry. He will head up all in-house design services ranging from live event fit-outs to a variety of creative concepts and design application for Unicorn’s leading clients.
Hoskins joins from the hospitality and food and beverage industry. He will take on the role of business development manager and will be responsible for driving revenue and new business as well as progressing business and proposals for current clients.
Managing director Hannah Luffman said: “I am overjoyed that Pete and Ed have joined the team. We have hired from outside the industry for both roles to diversify our experience base. The hire of a full-time senior designer is a very exciting step for us in increasing our creative studio offering.”
Sophie Parratt has also joined as project manager leading in logistics and delegate management for global client events and Joanna Davis joins from Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group as personal assistant to managing director, Hannah Luffman.
Luffman continues: “it is an incredibly exciting time at the agency as we start to offer services beyond event management bringing us in line with larger creative experience agencies.”
In March 2019, Jennifer Guy also joined as project manager and Emily Ash as marketing and communications coordinator.
