We’re thrilled to welcome back Stephanie Balme from maternity leave, taking on the new role of UK Business Development Director.

Stephanie will be responsible for attracting and converting new clients as we continue to harness the momentum of growth seen in the last few years.

Having worked for Imagination for over twelve years, working in both the Sydney and London offices, Stephanie’s delivered projects on a global scale for us. Her career has spanned disciplines from creative production and logistics to later moving into a client services capacity. This has played a crucial role in leading teams, nurturing clients and delivering on projects across the full breadth of our core offers - Consulting, Destinations, Content and Live.

In her new role, Stephanie will focus on expanding our new business team and growing its impressive client roster across the UK. Stephanie’s role follows the recent hire of Chad Hines, US Business Development Director further bolstering the Growth team globally.

We are delighted to promote Stephanie to this new position, and I’m particularly excited to see returning parents progress in their careers.
