Top Banana, the creative communications agency, has welcomed Natalie Benson as senior account manager.

Benson will be working on accounts in the finance, automotive and retail sectors and will be based from the London office. Having graduated from the UK Centre for Events Management with a degree in event management, Benson now has 12 years’ industry experience under her belt; as she joins from creative agency ACA Live.

Benson commented: “One of the reasons I joined Top Banana was because they are known for being great investors in their employees. They have such a wide range of clients I knew I’d be challenged, working on different projects that push my expertise. Plus, they have some fantastic in-house offerings; such as their film, design and venue finding offering, that I can really learn from”.

Jez Audus, client services director at Top Banana, added: “As our London team continues to grow, we needed to hire a Banana who could get stuck in and drive our accounts with passion and creativity. Natalie is the right fit for this – her experience in the field is going to bring us a new lease of life and we know she’s going to wow both our existing and prospective clients.”
