“Thank you to my team – you put your heart and soul into every day for our awesome clients. You are quite simply, some of the smartest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
“Thank you to my clients for trusting us with your business, my colleagues who provided unwavering support and also the partners who helped shape our journey. This next chapter is an exciting one.”
Tos had been in the role for six months after being promoted from CEO of Merkle’s Columbus group.
