Chartered accountancy firm MHA Monahans has appointed Immy Hellawell as events assistant.
Immy joins from Roke, an electronics engineering consultancy, where she was Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator and was responsible for internal and external events, including organising a company-wide music festival.
She brings a wide range of skills to the role, having had an exciting international equestrian career after leaving school.
She was responsible for looking after horses in the London 2012 Olympics for Brazilian eventing rider Marcelo Tosi, as well as then travelling across Europe and Mexico looking after the horses during competitions.
Immy was also an Equine Specialist at Countrywide Farmers plc, working with customers in the sector to complete sales and the relevant logistics.
At MHA Monahans, Immy will be responsible for the company’s busy schedule of events across the region, organising all aspects including identifying interesting speakers, appealing venues, invitations and co-ordinating the whole process.
Immy said: “MHA Monahans has a great schedule of regular and one-off events across all of their different specialisms and locations and I’m looking forward to taking them all on and continue developing them into unmissable parts of the region’s business calendar.
“Events are something I’m passionate about as I enjoy working with different personalities, using my skills in planning and logistics and making things happen, as well as getting people to be where they need to be to represent MHA Monahans at other events in the region.”
Simon Tombs, Managing Partner at MHA Monahans, added: “Events are a key part of MHA Monahans’ offer to clients and fellow professionals to help everyone stay ahead of the game and fully informed.
Immy is already an integral part of the marketing team and will be sure to make our events unmissable in the region.”
