Everyone's saying

When Pugh's company, Maiden, was acquired by Titan earlier in the year, anything could have happened. But, unlike others, he survived the changes... until recently. Having spent the summer steering what is now a true outdoor giant through an important period internally, Pugh now leaves for pastures new. A case of 'watch this space' to see where one of the biggest players in outdoor will re-emerge.
