Grass Roots Meetings & Events has promoted Philippa Murray and Nicola Cunningham to the role of Account Director in the wake of business growth. Wins include a global Strategic Meetings Management programme for a major retailer and the provision of venue sourcing for training facilities for a leading financial services firm.
Philippa Murray, who has risen through the ranks at Grass Roots M&E - from a venue consultant to Account Director - during the last eight years, leads a variety of clients across the energy, banking and professional services sectors. "Grass Roots provides a unique working environment with fresh challenges every day. The opportunity to have a more strategic approach, working with a diverse range of people to deliver creative solutions for clients is something I truly enjoy," she comments. "In particular I am looking forward to working closely with clients as we move towards a more integrated global approach to events, delivering complete services across not just the Meetings and Event division but the whole of the Grass Roots Group, who already offer dynamic performance improvement and employee engagement."
Having moved from a role focused on negotiation with key hotel partners for large scale financial events to an Account Management role based in Putney three years ago, Nicola Cunningham's focused portfolio of financial clients will benefit in particular from the changes. "We are a fast growing team," says Nicola. "And it is the people here that make it such a great place to work. It is a really friendly environment where a true team spirit is evident every day. I am lucky to work with some great clients and the additional responsibility as an Account Director will allow me to deliver more effectively for them than ever before.”
