BCD Meetings & Events (M&E) has expanded its UK life sciences team following a number of business wins – and a predicted 40 per cent growth in revenue.

The agency has appointed Zuzanna Gil-Dunne as senior project manager and Kristian Salermo and Briony Bruce-Johnson as project managers. The new roles come as part of BCD M&E’s continued growth strategy and also reflect the company’s increasing market share within the sector.

Hannah Wilkinson, senior director EMEA meetings management, life sciences, said: “We’re extremely pleased to welcome Zuzanna, Briony and Kristian to the life sciences team. As our knowledge and strength in the sector has seen us grow our portfolio with new multi-year client contracts, we have looked to source the best talent in the industry and believe we have made a fantastic choice in our three new additions.

“In addition we are predicting continued strong growth in this sector with growth of around 40 per cent in revenue.”

Together, the trio have more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry, having worked across production, agency and venue companies.

Gil-Dunne said: “Joining the BCD M&E family is a great way to kickstart the new year and I can’t wait to start delivering a wide range of projects for our life sciences clients.”

The appointments come hot on the heels of the recent hiring of Gill Newman as director, life sciences operations, EMEA.

Since acquiring Zibrant and Grass Roots Meetings and Events, BCD M&E has seen solid growth across Europe through its life sciences division, globalisation of major accounts and new wins in the retail and automotive sectors.
