Universal WorldEvents management line-up revealed

New merged entity Universal WorldEvents has revealed its full management team.

UniversalProcon and WorldEvents officially became Universal WorldEvents on 2 March, in a merger set to create a powerful force in the healthcare event marketplace. The company claims it works with nine out of the top 10 global pharmaceutical companies.

The full management team is Graham McIntosh - managing director; Denise Abbott - UK country director; Gary Dickinson – CEO Americas; Adam Gordon – VP business development, The Americas; Mark Saxby – sales and marketing director; Andy Tattersall – operations support director; Jeremy Wilson – finance director and Andrew Winterburn – director Europe.

Martin Parry, formerly CEO of WorldEvents, is also on the board with strategic project responsibilities, at a United Drug Divisional level, reporting into SMMS Managing Director, Chris Corbin. 

MD Graham McIntosh, said: ‘We have an excellent team in place that is geared up to take the business forward to the benefit of our clients and staff alike."

The two companies teamed up mid-way through 2010 to contend for a major global healthcare opportunity which they then won. As a result of this win and a number of others since the merger was announced the company has created 20 new roles.

The company will operate in the UK with its global head office in Ashby de la Zouch as well as offices in Cleckheaton, and London. The UniversalProcon staff located at Yeadon will move to Cleckheaton and in the US the WorldEvents staff based at Lambertville will move to Ivyland. In both cases the move is in the region of 12-15 miles.

The company also revealed new branding and launched a new website. Sales and Marketing Director, Mark Saxby, said, "The branding was implemented so that staff across 12 offices in the UK, US, mainland Europe and Asia came into work in the morning to be greeted by new signage, posters, screen savers and other branded materials. We have been running a teaser campaign in the run up to this to build up anticipation for the launch."

Universal WorldEvents will have 250 employees located in offices in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, US, Hong Kong and Singapore. Saxby says the objective will be to expand the global footprint further. Last year the company managed 1,100 meetings, exhibitions and events in over 50 countries.
