Our clients and teams will benefit from his expertise and experience. The timing is fortuitous as we prepare to seize the opportunities of the post-pandemic world.

I have been a keen observer of this changing dynamic and believe the new role will allow me an inspiring canvas to create value. The time has come for public relations and storytelling to reinvent itself with solutions that serve these new requirements.
