“We’ve had another exceptionally strong financial performance this year [to 30th June 2022], with organic growth of over 30%. All our regions performed well, with particularly strong growth in the US and APAC. We continue to focus on building long-lasting relationships with our enterprise clients and fostering a culture of collaborative innovation across the group.

I’m in no doubt that our performance reflects the high value that clients place on the expertise and commitment of our teams. So, we’re pleased to announce the following new promotions.
