Sharing the role equally, we welcome Bob Gaudin (left) and James Mountstevens (right).
Our 'Duo' are continuing in the MD role, following on from last year, however, this year Nic Ryan is no longer the third MD.
We are very excited to have them both working together, bringing not only talent and superb skills, but youth and enthusiasm to the role.
