Crystal Interactive makes five new appointments as business expands

Surrey-based event tech firm Crystal Interactive has announced five new appointments across the company to support growing client demand.

The full-service event technology company said it was delighted to welcome the five newest faces to the team. Lewis Thompson and Lucy Skinner join the company’s event technology specialists (ETS) team. Jess Bramley assumes the role of project coordinator in the apps team, Alex Pooley takes on the position of logistics coordinator and David Morgan boosts the sales team as business development manager. All roles are based out of the company’s UK office, in Godalming, Surrey.

The new appointments come after a strong start to the year for Crystal, which has seen the company deliver more than 240 events across the globe, for some of the world’s leading brands including E.ON and Deloitte. Last month, the company also announced the opening of a second office based in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Dom Honey, operations director at Crystal Interactive said: “The first six months of the year have been strong for us, with the delivery of high-profile events for existing clients, along with a number of significant new ones. On behalf of the whole team, I‘m delighted to welcome Lewis, Lucy, Jess, David and Alex and thrilled to have hired such a talented and personable group, with a great mix of experience. It’s an exciting time to be joining us and I can’t wait for them to become fully involved in the world of interactive events.”

Lewis Thompson, a recent broadcasting graduate joins the ETS team. He said: “The excitement of the live events industry, the opportunity to travel and work on a variety of events drew me to the role. I’ve already worked on some of our biggest events of the year so far, where I assisted in the deployment of our interactive voting technology, allowing studio audiences to vote during live TV shows.”

The company has also announced the promotion of event technology specialists Joe Anwar and Tom Woodley. Anwar and Woodley have been chosen to champion Crystal’s best-in-class technologies and become the ‘go-to’ people for advice and knowledge on the company’s specific product areas. Anwar will champion Smart Wearables and Woodley will champion Crystal’s Collaborate App.
