Jamie is a key hire for what is sure to be an exciting year in 2018 as we build on our status as a global media brand. The media landscape is constantly evolving but we’re confident that with our strong brand, a focus on technology and our highly engaged audience, as well as blue chip clients, we will continue to grow – not only from our base in Dublin but on a global scale.
