Former Capita director Paul Stoddart has joined CWT Meetings & Events as its new managing director for UK, IE and Benelux.

Stoddart, who started the role on 3 January, reports to Ian Cummings, whose role was expanded to vice president EMEA mid-2016. Stoddart will lead and direct all meetings and events business activity across the region, and has been tasked with continuing CWT Meetings & Events' growth.

Speaking of the appointment, Cummings said: "Paul is a strong leader with over 20 years M&E experience. After another strong year in 2016 with wins across many industry sectors, his broad experience is just what we need to keep our live events and SMM programmes ahead of the pack."

Stoddart added: "What attracted me to CWT Meetings & Events was its excellent reputation in the industry for managing large, high profile events seamlessly while ensuring the customer experience is always fresh and innovative. For a relatively young agency, CWT Meetings & Events is one of the top global names and I’m very much looking forward to seeing how far we can go in 2017 and beyond."

Stoddart joined Capita in March 2015 as director of meetings and events, before which he was at Banks Sadler as group sales director.
