Ashley Illston

Account Manager

Part of Paragon’s in-house Account Management team, Ashley has a vibrant background in the corporate live events and hospitality sector and is well versed in understanding the limitations clients often face when organising their own events.

Ashley’s calm and friendly manner has made him a firm favourite with client and supplier alike, and he prides himself on working to offer reliable and cost-effective solutions.

His account management style is relaxed and informal, and believes that his client’s would much rather go through their programmes over a beer or a coffee, than a traditional  PowerPoint!

An experienced business development professional with a background in recruitment and IT, Ashley also currently looks after Paragon’s Celebrity Experience packages, working to match our celebrity hosts with his client’s brand, values and team building requirements.

A semi-professional rugby player in his spare time, Ashley brings his passion for sport and live events into the Paragon office.
