The people we’ve added include key lead hires across multiple disciplines. Some hires have been very product and service-design driven and some more conceptual and creative. We need to be prepared for our imminent future growth.”
Di Wilkins, CEO of Critical Mass, explained, “The influx of new senior level talent in the UK, APAC, and the US is a direct result of our significant growth due to our organic expansion, new business wins, and expanding global client relationships.
