Industry association EVCOM has appointed two new board directors and confirmed that vice-chair Andrew Smith will succeed Steve Garvey as chairman after the AGM in June 2016.
Smith, who works at corporate screen content provider A-Vision, was on the board of IVCA before it merged with Eventia into EVCOM and is a strong advocate of the changes the organisation has made.
“Bringing film and live events together are two parts of the Holy Trinity of the communications and marketing mix,” said Smith.
“I plan to connect with more clients and digital companies to bring them into the fold as it is here that the whole communication offering can be discussed and also where business between member companies can truly grow. EVCOM should not just be about representing members and helping them win awards, but also about introducing opportunities to active member companies.”
The new board members are Sam Wilson MD of ECO Events and Steve Garratt from the Giggle Group.
Industry veteran Brian Kirsch has decided to step down from the EVCOM board as he heads into well-earned retirement. The board thanked him for his many years of support and hard work for the ITMA, Eventia and EVCOM.
