“Ian and Simon have got to know GBG and our brand over the past few years and now have a clear idea of what we are aiming to achieve and what good looks like for us. I also like to test the boundaries of what we can do, and they both always step up and hit the mark. Ian’s ability to manage the project, keep us on track and ensure high quality is great to see.
