“There are lots of ways to run a business but this way works for us. We’ve grown organically, when we’ve needed to. The business is going from strength to strength based on the solid foundation we’ve laid over the last eleven years. We’re now able to take it in a direction that I’d only dreamed possible. The team’s ambition and mine has grown with the business, and continues to grow. The next few years call for more team members, and working with more fantastic clients in an industry we love – we can’t wait”
