Ingenuity London appoints head of connect to bolster events offering
Ingenuity London has announced the appointment of Rachel Langton as head of connect, to drive forward the agency’s new Connect Events, launching in September 2019 across Europe and the US.
Joining the rapidly expanding events team, Langton brings a wealth of experience having previously worked across the Richmond Events marketing portfolio for over 7 years as head of business development for The Marketing Forum and The Digital Marketing Forum.
Building on the success of Ingenuity’s integrated business development model – of which events is a core part – the new Connect format will enable agencies to laser focus on the detail of digital. Covering creative, tech and media, the Connect events will provide brands with the opportunity to meet agency talent across these core areas of the digital landscape.
Langton says: “I’m excited to be joining the team here at Ingenuity as I’ve been impressed with the team’s innovation and impact in the sector for a number of years. Launching the new Connect events across multiple markets is clear representation of this and a great new challenge. The digital landscape is evolving so quickly, and as a leader in curating agency brand relationships, the team is confident that Connect Events will help bring together top brands and agencies in a simple, cost-effective format.”
Emma Robson, events director at Ingenuity, adds: “We are so pleased to have Rachel onboard with the events team, especially as we move into a time of big change and growth as a department. Rachel brings great experience, alongside an inherent knowledge of the digital agency landscape. Her previous roles in sales and new business events for marketing, make her well placed to help us produce events on the scale that the Connect format is set to deliver.”
