Managing director Joseph Pardillo, said: “I am beyond delighted to welcome fresh new faces to the team and equally proud to recognize a number of our existing crew with some very important role step-changes.
“Our growing team, across every function, truly value independence, empowerment, and entrepreneurship – they’re not afraid of accountability.
“And they don’t want to be swallowed up by a large organization where their contributions aren’t visible but instead want the freedom to think holistically and move at speed.
“We will continue to develop this culture and build on it from the ground up with fresh graduate thinkers; I truly do believe that this is the secret sauce that underpins all other shiny selling points and proprietary USPs.”
