ATPI appoints global head of events

ATPI has appointed Helen van Berkel as global head of events.

She was previously managing director for ATPI's sports and corporate events business in the Netherlands and Canada.

The travel and events management business said the appointment underlines its 'strategic focus on specialised lines of business.'

Van Berkel will also build on the opportunities of the new Direct ATPI Global Travel organisation.

ATPI Group CEO Andrew Waller said: "The development of Helen's remit follows a period of significant expansion in both our events divisions.

"To realise our ambition for continued growth at an international level it is important for us to have the right strategic focus for each of our specialist businesses, and that is what Helen's leadership and specialist expertise will provide".

Van Berkel will work alongside ATPI's global commercial head of sports events Michiel Aulbers and chief commercial officer Gary Pearce.

ATPI's corporate events and sports events divisions have seen strong growth in the last 12 months with a number of new business wins.
