BD Network has announced three senior experiential hires, including two new recruits from agency The Bank.

Stephen Crook and Victoria Roberts have both joined from The Bank as production director and senior account director respectively. Crook has also gained experience at JWT London and Goose Communications, while Roberts has worked at the likes of RPM and A Little Bird.

Jennifer Draper joins the new recruits as business director, experiential. She previously ran Ketchum’s events arm as practice group director.

The appointments have been announced off the back of a series of new client wins for the agency. BD was confirmed as lead activation agency for AB InBev brand Corona earlier in August, and began work on Cadbury’s Fly Air campaign in July.

Sam Smith, managing director of BD Network, said: "The start of 2015 was a period of unprecedented growth for BD Network following the competitive new business pitches of AB InBev and Cadbury’s. With such growth comes great opportunity, which has allowed us to expand our experiential and events offering.

"We are particularly proud of the new business wins and the new projects and opportunities this brings with it."
