Liverpool-based M&P organises events for clients across multiple sectors including Mersey Maritime, Mercedes-Benz, Poundland, Holland & Barrett, Hotel Chocolat, Beauty Bay, Dunelm, Magnet and BASF.

In June M&P announced it was creating a new videography department. This will enable the business to create events with tailored content inline with event themes and also stand alone client brand videography.

Having worked for the company for 10 years, Karen’s new role will see her manage the ongoing relationships of all clients. She will have a broader, more strategic role in the direction of the Mann Island-based business.

Jon Kelly, said: “As the business grows, it became clear we needed a strategic leader to guide the team through our next chapter and ensure our roster of long term clients are receiving the consistent quality and level of service that we are known for.

“Karen is the perfect person for this and as a well respected member of both the team and the wider industry, I am confident she is the right woman for the job.”
