Live experiences agency HGA has hired Ruth Fussell in a new role as business growth manager.

She joins head of sales Chris Hobson and relationship manager Paul Basson in a team that was formed at the start of 2018.

Fussell joins the team to develop both new business leads and to account manage some of Manchester-based HGA’s clients. She's previously worked in sales at both Hire Space and Beem in London. 

Managing director Dan Laurence said: “Ruth is a key appointment to an important team. After 30 years of business, working with some of our clients for decades, we have entered an exciting period of strategic growth and new business – led by our ambitious sales team. We are winning an unprecedented rate of new clients and so the time is right to appoint someone with Ruth’s talent to service those names and to continue building on the new business success we have seen in 2018.”

The new sales team has already seen a series of account wins, including an international video and creative campaign for one of the world’s largest mining companies and a three-day conference for a European retail giant.
