UK events agency Team Umbrella has announced the appointment of Anna Johnsson as managing director.
Johnsson, who has been the agency’s director of operations since 2013, will take over the day to day running of the agency from Martin Ellis.
Ellis said: “Anna really deserves this. She’s been a driving force behind the company and if anyone can lead us forward, it’s Anna.”
As the company continues to grow, Ellis will be focusing on working behind the scenes, taking care of financial, legal and administrative matters, and continuing his work with the Alliance of Independent Agencies (AIEA).
Johnsson said: “I am incredibly excited to be taking on this new challenge now. The timing is perfect as we celebrate ten years this year, have recently launched our new website, and as a business we are incredibly busy again, which I am so grateful for after the past couple of years.
“We have a lot of plans and aspirations for where the company is heading, and the outlook is looking bright. We are currently working on several strategic partnerships, which will be revealed soon.”
Team Umbrella is an independently owned events agency offering a range of services from venue finding and training to full on-site event management.
