There is positive momentum in many areas of the Group coming from new business wins and new talent joining the Group. The achievement of 14 per cent organic revenue growth, excluding the impact of acquisitions, demonstrates we can achieve more working together as a Group.
“As we enter a new strategic phase, we have further simplified our outward facing brands but more importantly put more strength and capabilities in the larger businesses. We will continue to build digital and data capabilities and we remain ready to invest further through acquisitions in our international network, particularly in the USA, which has experienced incredible growth this year,” Melhuish said.
