GL events UK has appointed former International Special Event Society (ISES) board member David Tunnicliffe as commercial director as the company aims to strengthen its management team.

Tunnicliffe will represent the company across its UK businesses, including the temporary structure arm Owen Brown; marquee and frame tent provider Snowdens, and the seating and stadia division.

Scott Jameson, MD of GL events UK, said: "This is part of a wider strategy we are putting in place that firstly unites our businesses behind a central, highly experienced and motivated leadership team.

"Secondly its about looking at new investments we can make that offers our customers better products, new innovations and more freedom to create the events they want to put on, where they want to put them."

It comes as GL events UK brings its branding to International Confex this week, having sponsored the main entrance to the show, a move it hopes will see a stimulus for growth in the events industry.

Tunnicliffe, who joins the group from De Boer Structures, said: "This is a business with a great heritage, excellent products, but also a very clear vision of how they can add value to the industry, and support creative event organisers create the events they want.”
