Enhanced Management Team for Events Crew

Events Crew are pleased to announce that Geoff Binding, formerly Partnership Manager for Virgin Sport, has joined the team for the 2017 season and will be helping to develop and manage the Events Crew ever expanding portfolio.

Geoff has previously worked with Events Crew through his role with Achieve Events / Virgin Sport and the Vitality Run Series where Geoff utilised Events Crew to deliver the high standard of branding and consistency required by a major national sponsor. Geoff has previously worked at Bath Rugby after successfully attaining a Sports and Social Science Degree at the University of Bath, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. 

Geoff will be leading Operations and Activation for Events Crew as well as taking on numerous special projects. This will help Events Crew consolidate and grow their sporting and events portfolio which currently includes the Vitality Run Series, Edinburgh Marathon, Bournemouth Marathon and IRONMAN amongst many others.

Brent Mitchell, Managing Director of Events Crew comments: “Having worked with Geoff in the past, we know he will be a great addition to the team. His experience in the sector and professionalism in dealing with clients and customers as well as his unwavering attention to detail will help improve Events Crew even further”.

Geoff Comments: “Having experienced how impressive an operation Events Crew are to work with as a client, it was a 'no-brainer' to join Brent and the team to further the good work and continue the steady growth of the company’s operations. I look forward to helping to continue the high standard of delivery for existing clients as much as I look forward to meeting possible new clients and delivering Event services beyond their expectations."

Geoff’s appointment follows the return of Matthew Taylor as Plant and Transport Manager. Matthew was part of the original Events Crew team before leaving to work with a major high street retail chain. His return will allow the expansion of the Events Crew transport and logistics offering, both in the UK and Europe.

Brent continues, “Having Matt back in the team heralds an exciting time. When Events Crew started as a hobby 20 years ago, Matt was a part of that small team. To have him back now as a Plant and Transport Manager responsible for our vehicle fleet shows how far we have come, but also how we have maintained our identity”.

Matt comments “It is great to be back and I am very pleased with the role. The transport element of the business is key to our successful delivery.”

With the events season now upon us, these new additions to the Events Crew core team will allow more clients to experience the Events Crew service, whilst maintaining the high level of customer service and delivery that we are renowned for.
