participate in shaping an agency's culture and ethos at the beginning of

enthusiastic people who will be great fun and stimulating to work


The managing partner, Graham Deakin, added: "This is a great way to

start the year. We have taken our time to find the right partner. The

chemistry had to be just right. From the first time we met Anna we were

impressed by the constructive way in which she challenged our thinking.

I know she is going to make a massive difference to our offering. We

can't wait to get started."
