Venues and Events International have rehired two former employees to service new accounts won by the Swindon based agency.

Marlene Scott and Nicky Pinnell, both former employees of Venues Event Management, have rejoined the expanding agency as a result of recent successes including the previously announced award of the AXA contract.

Marlene Scott, Conference Planning Executive said: “I first started working for Anita and the team in 2001 on what was then the Winterthur Life (now AXA) team as an Account Manager. I left to have my daughter and then changed careers, working as a childminder then a Teaching Assistant. After 10 years running around with children I decided I wanted to get back in touch with Anita – Venues and Events International had just won the AXA account back and it felt like fate! Working with this team is amazing, the company is so family (and dog!) friendly and I love the personal touch with our clients, the rest is history!

Nicky Pinnell re-joins after originally starting working for Anita over 15 years ago. Nicky said: “I worked for Anita many years ago at Venues Event Management and in 2018 when the opportunity presented itself to return, I jumped at the chance. Having been back for 3 months and being given the opportunity to build my own client relationships again I know I have made the right decision!”

Anita Lowe, Chief Executive for Venues and Events International added: “I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to have Nicky and Marlene back within the family; it’s not just our clients that appreciate our personal touch and our values! We have a lot of exciting new projects this year and I’m delighted that our team is continuing to grow.”

This news comes as Venues and Events International were awarded the M&IT Silver Award for Best Intermediary Agency (Fewer than 40 employees).
