Four new faces have joined Concerto Group in a revamp of the senior management team.


Alex Dingwall, formerly director of agency Raspberry Blonde, has joined as group central sales and venues director, with a wealth of experience in business development and operations across the sports and corporate, catering and events industries.


Chris Miles, the former head of sales at London Bridge venue Vinopolis is the new sales director of Concerto’s catering brand Create, while Carly Mitchell re-joins as deputy MD of Ultimate Experience, and Nicci Gisby has also re-joined as group business development director.


Concerto, which operates more than 15 brands across event management, venues and catering and other event services, appointed Sam Gill as CEO in November, shortly before posting group pre-tax profits of £627k for the year ending 28 February 2015. Turnover at the Group's live events proposition, Concerto Live, topped £10 million. 


Gill said: “The management team has been reinvigorated by the arrival of key seniors including Alex Dingwall, Chris Miles, Carly Mitchell and Nicci Gisby (née Purnell). The four are all well respected members of the events industry, with a fantastic record of improving events businesses. We look forward to them leading the way in expanding Concerto’s venue portfolio at an exciting time of growth for the company.”
