“I love working alongside all my clients and am thrilled to increase collaborations with new associations in the Australian and New Zealand market,” he said.

“As ASN continues to grow, I’m excited about the continued mentoring of our team and taking them along for the ride too.”

ASN has also promoted Kara Barker, Chad Murphy and Jordyn Trolove to the senior leadership team.

“Tim and I are thrilled to find such maturity and professional support from within our ranks,” said Mike Pickford, executive chairman at ASN Events.

“As we’ve grown, we have spent considerable time developing a career pathway to ensure we attract and retain talented team members. It’s paying dividends for the company and the staff.”

Tim Hancock, managing director at ASN Events, said the company is committed to helping team members forge long term careers.

“The industry is rebuilding its level of experienced event professionals post-Covid and we have the brightest young talent helping to guide ASN Events into the future. There’s a lot to be excited about,” he said.
