“When we defined our plan for expansion in the UK, the Number 1 priority was to focus on getting the very best quality people, who fit culturally with the dynamic and very non-corporate style we embrace. From that point we set about building our ‘Dream Team’, and I believe the talent we have added to what is already an incredible collective of individuals is what will ensure we achieve the goals we have set ourselves. Our distributors, partners and customers can all expect to benefit from our unequivocal focus on making sure we are thecompany they enjoy working with the most”.
