ISE expands senior leadership team
ISE organiser Integrated Systems Events has appointed Tom Barker-Harrold as senior marketing director and Jeroen Perquin as senior finance director.

Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated Systems Events, said: “At ISE, we have ambitious goals for the future so it’s important that we have the right team in place to get us there. Tom [pictured above] 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.”

Perquin [pictured right] joined as senior finance director earlier this year and is based in the Netherlands. He brings extensive international finance experience from the energy, engineering and IT business to the company, working for both large multinationals as well as start-up companies. Barker-Harrold, based in the UK, joined in August and will oversee the company’s marketing and content strategy across multiple platforms in the lead up to its flagship event. He brings more than 15 years’ experience within the AV industry - and experience as an ISE exhibitor - to his new role.

Barker-Harrold said: “I’m delighted to be joining the team during such an exciting phase. 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.”

Perquin said: “Joining just before the 2023 show, and being new to the industry, it was impossible for me not to be hugely impressed by the quality and the size of the ISE show as well as the diversity and quality of the ISE team organising it. I am very happy I can bring my international finance experience into the ISE event and to the ISE team, and look forward to the 20th anniversary of ISE and beyond.”

ISE also welcomed Lara Mayer as manager of business development and special projects. Mayer brings extensive experience in strategic management to the company. The ISE sales team has also expanded with Siqi Deng as sales assistant and Antonia Lennon as sponsorship manager. The ISE marketing team added Gordon Wong as marketing executive earlier this year and the ISE operations team expanded with the appointment of Raúl Ruiz and Loan Muñoz as customer success executives.
