Luke Brown

MD, Event Management

Luke has delivered hundreds of live events, experiences and campaigns across the globe – working with some pretty high-profile contributors including Her Majesty The Queen, HRH The Prince of Wales, Prime Ministers and Presidents, to name but a few. Luke leads our Live Events Team, and when he’s not developing new and innovative solutions to wow audiences, can be found wading in rivers fly fishing whilst listening to Test Match Special (rock ‘n’ roll!).

Cedric Fouche

Anna Krenkova

Client Services Director

Anna looks after our key account team and client base. With her global outlook (she is fluent in 3 languages and has lived and worked in 5 countries), razor-sharp attention to detail and incredible level of industry knowledge, it’s no wonder our clients love coming back to her. When out of the office Anna can be found enjoying the Great Outdoors in (sometimes) sunny Devon.

Responsible for the overall creative control across all projects, Jim can advise you on the best way of enhancing the experience for your visitors.

Dieter Sturm

Head of Design

Dieter has been with Bray Leino Events for over 16 years and is responsible for developing and managing all aspects of our 3D design output. When not working on a major house renovation he can be found in the sea teaching his son’s how to surf or driving them to football matches. One day he’ll get to do something for himself…
