WONDER London, the creative events agency, has appointed Steve Boatman as its new production director, effective immediately.

Boatman will be responsible for leading and managing the production team and overseeing all production-related output at the agency. He will be reporting directly to Scott Micklethwaite, who was recently promoted to head of production.

Prior to joining WONDER London, Boatman spent a year in Southeast Asia, working on the music festival Quest, in Vietnam. Before that he was a senior production manager at Avantgarde London, working with clients like Porsche, Phillip Morris, TFL and the British Paralympic Association.

With 10 years’ events industry experience, some of Boatman’s career highlights include working as a technical director for a Google Camp event while at BrandFuel and producing Honda’s 1000 square metre stand at the Geneva and Paris motor show while at Avantgarde.

Micklethwaite commented: “Steve’s previous experience and his approach to handling complex, large-scale projects will add significant value to WONDER London’s production team across a wide range of client work. He really stood out from the crowd and impressed us with his expertise, attitude and personality, which reflected the WONDER London ethos. We can’t wait to start working with him.”

Boatman added: “I’m really excited to be joining WONDER London, as this is offering me the challenge of a production director role. This is a young, award winning company that is doing exceptionally well – I wanted to be a part of it. Also, having previously worked with Google, I’m looking forward to collaborating with them again.”
