Integrated Systems Events has announced the expansion of its senior leadership team with key appointments ahead of ISE 2024, the key show for the AV industry that takes place in Barcelona, 30 January-2 February. Tom Barker-Harrold joins as senior marketing director and Jeroen Perquin (pictured) as senior finance director.

“Tom and Jeroen join at an exciting time, as we prepare for our special 20th anniversary edition at ISE 2024, and we’re thrilled to welcome their unique knowledge, insights and experiences to our dynamic and international team,” says Mike Blackman, managing director, Integrated Systems Events.

Perquin is based in The Netherlands and brings extensive international finance experience from the energy, engineering and IT business to the company. Barker-Harrold is based in the UK and will oversee the company’s marketing and content strategy across multiple platforms in the lead up to its flagship event. He brings over 15 years’ experience within the AV industry – and valuable experience as an ISE exhibitor – to his new role.

“The 20th anniversary edition of ISE promises to be an unmissable event and I’m looking forward to marking the occasion with our valued participants. The show’s evolution since my early visits to the RAI has been impressive and I look forward to building on that into the future, together with our industry partners,” Barker-Harrold said.

ISE has also welcomed Lara Mayer as manager of business development and special projects.

The ISE Sales Team is completed by the appointments of Siqi Deng as sales assistant and Antonia Lennon as sponsorship manager, as well as new appointments in the marketing and customer services teams.
