WRG is expanding its team across Manchester and London with six new permanent roles.

Craig Wilson has been appointed technical director, a newly-created role to boost the agency’s technical capabilities and live events offering. Based in Manchester, Wilson will lead in the delivery of brand experiences and brings a wealth of technical experience gained in theatre production and roles at event agencies Crown and Jack Morton, where he set up a technical department in Dubai.
Russ Lidstone CEO of WRG and The Creative Engagement Group said: “Delivery is everything and we’re always striving to push the boundaries of what is possible both creatively and technically. This new role will enable us to create even more unforgettable brand experiences for our clients.”   
As a result of increased demand from its clients for experiential campaigns, the company is also boosting its live and creative capabilities, with Hannah Burke joining as project manager in the environments team and Michael Irvine as junior project manager, working on projects for Google and WRG’s healthcare clients. 
In Manchester, Steve Porter takes up the role of producer with Ella Wilson and Beth McDuff as project coordinators. 
Mark Jackson, head of environments said: “We’re investing in the growth of our teams across live and environments to reflect the increased demand from our clients for live and experiential campaigns. 
“I’m delighted to welcome Hannah, Michael, Steve, Ella and Beth to The Creative Engagement Group.”
WRG recently announced the hire of three senior roles in the live team to boost creative capabilities across the whole spectrum of events.
The Creative Engagement Group recently added healthcare training experts Axiom to operate alongside sister agencies WRG, The Moment and Just Communicate.
