New director and board level appointment at On

Promoted: Adam Dewhurst and Chris Vernon-Smith

Bondholder On Event Production has continued its strategic expansion with the appointment of a new director and the creation of a new role at board level for another.

Senior Production Manager, Adam Dewhurst, has been promoted to the post of Production Director, taking over the position left vacant by Chris Vernon-Smith, who assumes the newly-created post of Technical Director.

Adam joined the business in 2008 and worked in all areas of the business including Hire Manager and Engineer before making the move into production management in 2010, which coincided with a real turning point for the business.

In his new role, Adam will be responsible for managing a variety of creative live events, along with client liaison and budget management. Chris will now be responsible for improving the efficiency of On's warehouse and internal processes to ensure the company can maintain its exception service levels.

Guy Eaton, Managing Director of On Event Production, said: "Over the past eight years, we've watched Adam grow into a popular, pivotal member of our team and his promotion is part of his natural progression through the company."

He continued: "The decision to create the role of technical director will enable us to forge ahead with our growth plans after a successful 2015, which saw us relocate to new purpose-designed premises whilst completing a number of high-profile jobs for our clients."

On Event Production has received funding from the Derby Enterprise Growth Fund (DEGF) which supports growth and job creation in businesses in Derby and surrounding areas.
