Since the start of 2012, Green Room has grown to 53 staff and has expanded into further overseas markets. We have invested in growing our new business team with the introduction of insights into our business, appointing a full time Insights manager and a Marketing Executive to drive internal marketing, as well as the appointment of Oliver Disney in the newly-created role of Head of Business Development. Ollie joins the team from McCann where he held the role of Business Development Director for 9 years. We also have a Business Development Manager working overseas in our new office space in Amsterdam as part of our ongoing overseas expansion. We have also appointed 2D Creative Director, Paul Mynard from Fitch Singapore, who headed up the Asia market.
This follows a period of exciting developments for Green Room. The agency has enjoyed double-digit growth this year, as well as delivering projects in overseas markets including European territories, America, Australia and the Middle East, whilst expanding its capabilities to include digital design and delivery expertise. Our international work during the year includes global retail executions for existing clients, as well as International client wins such as Jawad in Dubai where we created and launched the new ShoeCiti retail concept in the Mall of Emirates.
Our portfolio has grown in breadth as well as depth, and whilst we have enjoyed longstanding relationships with clients, we are pushing the boundaries within brief and working on more experiential projects such as the Nike Flyknit Experience which was executed across Europe.
We have also continued to drive our company culture and in the last twelve months, have been awarded the Investors in People Accreditation.
