Meet The Team

With over 75 years of collective industry experience our team is made up of ‘in-the-know’ professionals who have the combined skills to cover every element of your event.

 

We all come from a variety of backgrounds with different experiences and ideas which allows us to be creative on every project.

 

We work on a variety of corporate event projects for a wide range of clients and ensure we share our experiences – good and bad – to guarantee we’re constantly learning from one another and developing both individually and as a team.

Mel

Our Founder and MD, Mel (aka, ‘Dad’) steers the good ship “Ex Events”, ensuring everything is running smoothly and is always on the lookout for new opportunities. Having staged thousands of events throughout the UK and Europe, Mel’s experience is invaluable. When he takes his events hat off you’ll find him walking his dog through Richmond Park, cheering on the Hammers or coaching his twins boys football team.

David

David, also affectionately known as ‘DT’, ‘Tails’, ‘Ten Pin Taylor’, is our Director of Sales. With a passion for hosting corporate parties, conferences and private events, David’s knowledge and relationships within the events industry are what make him tick. When not at his desk or on site, David is pacing the fairways of a golf course or playing in the garden with his daughter being that ever so proud Dad.

James

James is Ex’s resident Project Director & relishes bringing the team together to deliver complex logistical events with a bit of added flair. Overseeing campaigns across the medical, financial, charity & media sectors – incorporating conferences, exhibitions and brand activations – he’s never too far from a spreadsheet. When not burning the midnight oil in the office you’ll often find him snowboarding anywhere he can find snow.

Danielle

Danielle is the lead Account Manager for our Conference events division with over 10 years’ experience in the industry, having organised and run a number of large events in the UK and abroad. On site Danielle will never be too far away from a clipboard and very detailed function sheet, while at the weekend she likes to stretch her legs with long walks along the river in Kingston to a spot where she can get a glass of rosé in her hand.

Anna

Anna has been resident DJ, social secretary and chief barista at Ex from day one. You will find her dabbling in all aspects of the business whether it be parties, away days, charity projects or conferences, she’s always looking for the next brief and venue opening. When out of the office, you will find her tackling the rugby pitch, or supping a pint in a beer garden.

Ben

Ben is our business development lead. Forging new relationships and sourcing new clients, he gets the Ex name out to all corners of the industry. His experience covers the corporate events, sports, apparel and media markets, both here in the UK and overseas. Away from the office he can be found down by the beach in Hove with his kids devouring an ice cream while pondering his latest fantasy football transfer dealings.

Josie

With over 5 years’ experience, Josie has exceptional industry knowledge for Summer and Christmas parties. Always one step ahead of the game, no brief is too challenging and will always endeavour to find the right solution for the client. As a nineties and noughties boyband enthusiast, Josie is always requesting Take That or Westlife on the office jukebox and can usually be found sipping on a large glass of wine on one of London’s roof terraces.

Nikki

Nikki is the newest addition to the team here at Ex. Having experienced the busy world of agency life previously, Nikki works across the entire event process from venue sourcing and proposal building to delivering an event on site. On the weekends you’ll find her busting some moves at her favourite House and Hip Hop dance classes, or wrestling through a hefty novel in time for her next book club meeting.
