George P. Johnson (GPJ) has appointed Peter Davies to the newly created role of business development director, UK.

Davies joined the client services team at GPJ in 2013 as senior account director, leading EMEA activity for workday, salesforce and latterly took on a global account director remit across GPJ’s Gartner business.

Jason Megson, managing director, GPJ, UK said: "Pete’s appointment is a testament to the tenacity and aptitude he has shown at GPJ over the last 3 years."

 "We’re going through an exciting period of growth and change at the agency, and hence Pete’s new role supports our re-gearing of the agency’s senior team and our renewed focus on strategy and creativity."

Davies has worked for leading event agencies during his 20-year career, starting in production roles, progressing into technical directorship and subsequently senior operational roles.

Davies said: "Recently we’ve had a number of great wins in some exciting new industry sectors. This in-turn has created positive momentum within the agency that I am looking forward to building on, while continuing to support and develop our offering with our longstanding client partners."

Last month the agency reported a 16% year-on-year increase in turnover to £34.1m for 2015. In June it  launched an office in Oslo, Norway.
