Alison Jackson has been announced as the group MD for Nineteen Group, which recently announced private equity backing and the acquisition of Western Business Exhibitions.
Jackson has worked in the industry for over 25 years, including time at UBM and Ascential Events, and has a background in managing multi-million pound portfolios and experience in running joint ventures and acquisitions.
“When we got private equity backing Alison Jackson was the group managing director that we dreamt of having but never thought we would,” Peter Jones, Nineteen Group CEO, tells EN. “She’s probably one of the most brilliant group MDs that we could have got on board and we’ve done it. We’re thrilled.
“Alison will be driving Nineteen Group on its day to day voyage and with her at the helm of the business we expect great things.”
