Barrie Brien, CEO at STRAT7 comments:
“We’ve experienced a period of good growth over the past year in what has been a very challenging environment for our clients and our industry. Our primary aim has been to support our clients through the pandemic, and I think our performance reflects the trust businesses have in partnering with us through these uncertain times. We continue to invest in all areas of the business and believe now is the right time to build up our Sales & Marketing function to help deliver on our growth strategy, and to ensure our clients realise the full value of the STRAT7 offer.”
