BCD M&I boosts its business development team


BCD M&I has boosted its business development team with the appointment of Gary Povey as business development director EMEA.

Earlier this year the Maidenhead-based agency said that it was looking to add staff members to the team, as well as other departments such as operations and account management, following strong results in 2011.

Povey has more than 16 years of experience within the agency sector and has worked for Portman Travel, American Express, Citi Group and five years at Omega World Travel as director of sales and client services EMEA. Most recently, he was area sales director for London for InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG).

Karen Evans, vice president, business development EMEA, said: “Gary’s experience and great track record will be a fantastic addition to BCD M&I. The breadth and depth of his knowledge of the events industry is exactly what we need to continue new business acquisition and I am really looking forward to having him as part of the team.”

Povey added: "It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining BCD M&I. The agency’s mix of event and enterprise level clients means that it’s able to offer solutions for a wide variety of customer needs. I can’t wait  to get started.”
