Toby Wand has been promoted to managing director of Fresh Montgomery, after seven years working with the company.
Most recently Wand has worked as group exhibition director within the company, which specialises in hospitality and foodservice events such as Hotelympia.
The move is the latest in a series of changes following Montgomery becoming sole owner of the business 12 months ago. The new position is said to equip Fresh Montgomery for its next phase of expansion.
Fresh Montgomery chairman Christopher Newton said of Wand’s promotion: “Toby is a highly respected figure in both the hospitality and the exhibitions sectors. Fresh Montgomery is looking forward to future growth, both in the UK and abroad, under his leadership.”
The company said that 2011 was a “stellar Year” and that the last six exhibitions have all grown in attendance.
The Fresh Montgomery team was recognised for its performance and was named Organiser Team of the Year at the 2011 AEO Excellence Awards.
