The newly created Director of Events role will encompass the brands’ consumer events as well as the growing portfolio of successful B2B events, including the CEO Summit and Tech Summit.

Reporting in to Times Media Commercial Director, Caroline Tredget, and Times Media’s General Manager, Tracy Yaverbaun, Herlihy will work across commercial, editorial and customer stakeholders to develop an integrated events strategy for brand clients.

Commenting on her appointment, Herlihy said: “Times Media’s brands and title portfolio give it an unparalleled convening power for senior business decision makers as well as high-value consumer audiences.

“As such, there is huge potential to grow its event portfolio across both areas, with high-engagement, live activations that deliver real value to attendees and sponsors alike.”

Caroline Tredget, Commercial Director, Times Media, said: “Events are an important part of our commercial offering and have huge potential to grow.

“We’re really excited about the opportunity to build on our established B2B events such as the CEO Summit and the Earth Summit with new activations that reach and engage C-Suite and SME business decision makers.”
