LONDON--Former Good Relations CEO Teresa-Anne Dunleavy has been named CEO of event company Concerto Group.
Dunleavy left her Good Relations role last September, when the Chime Communications firm unveiled a new management lineup in the wake of Bell Pottinger's MBO.
At the time, it was announced that Dunleavy had shifted to a business development position at Chime, but has since left the holding group. She begins the Concerto role in March of this year, taking charge of one of the UK's largest event service companies, which recently reported a 17 percent hike in revenues to £31m.
Dunleavy spent five years at Good Relations, after previously working for more than a decade at Porter Novelli. At Concerto, she takes over from interim CEO Andrew Duncan, chief executive and founder of Newmarket Partners, who has held the role for the past 12 months.
"When we started this process we were committed to bringing in the best talent we could find to drive the business forward," said Concerto chairman Mike Kershaw. "That search took us beyond Concerto and the industry overall. We are thrilled to have TA joining us. She brings a wealth of experience in driving business growth through change plus an energy and drive that will complement our existing teams."
