The Group Management Board’s singular focus will be in driving the next phase of our growth by getting ever closer to our clients. Working both in-region and globally in collaboration with colleagues around the world, we will continue to identify new opportunities and bring innovative solutions in line with their needs. I also want to recognize Robert MacMillan's own achievements, taking HH Global from a million pound broker into the incredible business we are today, a $1.7B business operating in 54 countries and serving hundreds of the world's largest brands. His drive, ambition and relentless pursuit of growth have been at the core of the company's success to date.”
