GES has promoted Blake Horgan to the position of portfolio director for a host of major UK organiser clients.

Horgan has worked for GES for more than seven years and in that time he has delivered a series of leading UK exhibitions including Toy Fair, FIT Show and IFE. He also played a key part in the GES delivery team at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Based at GES’ ExCeL London office, Horgan has built up strong relationships with organiser clients including CloserStill Media. He played an important role in CloserStill’s contract extension with GES earlier this year.

Jason Stead, managing director UK, GES, said: “We are delighted for Blake – this is a true testament to the great work he has delivered over the years. He has proven himself to be a strong communicator and effective account manager. He works tirelessly on delivering the most engaging live events while offering a truly seamless customer experience.”
