New Managing Director of the 6EZ Group Simon Bristow said: “I’m delighted to be taking on the role of Managing Director of 6EZ Group and helping to develop the work we are already
delivering as well as driving growth across the Group. Despite being such a young agency, our unique approach has already proven to be hugely popular and successful. We’re working with a number of great brands on a range of exciting projects. With a great team in place there is huge potential to deliver even more great work in the future.
On the appointment of Lydia Ferrari Kehoe, Simon added:
