“I’m really looking forward to working with everybody on creating the long term strategic plan and steering the company to achieve the goals we set for the future. There’s masses of talent here and lots of successful work going on, so I’m really happy to become part of the team and start building on that. There’s also a lovely, fun vibe around the place and I’ve been made very welcome. Looking forward to meeting many more of the big family – everyone involved – so come and say hello and ask me anything you’re curious about!” – Rachel
