LONDON, Oct. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative technology company Splash Worldwide is proud to announce the immediate addition of Leigh Eaton as Financial Controller. His appointment was announced by Splash's Chief Financial Officer, Howard Price.
Eaton joins Splash from the global marketing solutions and technology company Engine, where he served as Commercial Financial Controller since 2018, heading up the Creative and Experience Design division. Eaton earned that post after more than a dozen years supporting multiple Engine Group entities, including Synergy Sponsorship (now ENGINE | Sport), Partners Andrews Aldridge (PAA), Fantastic Thinking, Fuel, Engine Media, Engine Strategy, Trailer Park, NuFu and WCRS. Beginning as a Junior Finance Assistant in 2006, he rose to Management Accountant by 2011, and was named Senior Management Accountant in 2014, with day-to-day financial management responsibilities for numerous Engine Group enterprises.
Splash's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Managing Director Natalie Winford was formerly Operations Director for PAA. Based on her solid past working relationship with Eaton, he was recommended highly for this new position.
