The story of how they’ve been transforming the agency and their vision for what a great agency should be is inspiring. I am really excited about having the opportunity to work with the team and help to elevate The Work, The Work, The Work. We have got all the ingredients needed to do amazing work – a deep pool of young talent, strong client portfolio and a collaborative network.”
