Former McCann Manchester CEO Brian Child has joined the board of directors at European roadshow truck tour supplier Event Marketing Solutions.

Child, who also established experiential agency Momentum, will join the agency’s management team to oversee sales and marketing and help aid international growth.

Keith Austin, CEO at EMS said: “Brian has an impressive track record and we’re pleased to welcome him on board. He will play a pivotal role in the company’s development strategy as we focus on international expansion and strengthening our position overseas.”
