I am looking forward to the challenge of helping the business to develop its international presence, adding to an already successful and growing UK presence. It is great to be here at such an exciting and ambitious time, and to be able to offer customers the chance to benefit from existing Wilton Bradley brands as well as our extensive design and manufacturing capabilities.”
