Dmg events, an international events company, has appointed Ben Greenish as senior vice president to head its growing construction division and Big 5 brand.

Greenish has held a number of senior positions at various media companies including UBM and EMAP. He was also a former managing director of MEED in the Middle East and most recently managing director and CRO of Future Plc with a portfolio including 25 UK events. Greenish has also held managing director positions with Press Holdings Media Group.

Matt Denton, president of dmg events, commented: “Ben’s extensive knowledge in events and media, particularly in architecture, civil engineering and construction, made him a shoo-in for the construction leadership role. He is a seasoned professional with the skills and experience to drive the division and Big 5 brand forward. A strong and proven business leader, he is a fantastic addition to the team.

“As we look to grow the business, both across our traditional Middle East home and further afield, through acquisition and launch, Ben’s experience and entrepreneurial nature will be perfectly suited at the helm.”
