Commenting on the win, Radical’s managing director Justin Cullen said, ‘I am just delighted with this result, it is great to get recognised by your peers for all the hard work. This industry, and in particular social media, relies on talent and energy, and it is only this that delivers, it makes me really happy that the Radical team have this in spades – hats off!”
