Whilst sadly, Rupert is not with us to celebrate the occasion, he had the satisfaction of seeing his succession nearing completion,” said Waller.

Woeke, VP of Sales and Marketing, highlighted: “To mark the occasion, we are proud to launch our revitalised logo. As one of Rupert’s final wishes, he asked that we review our brand presence, reminding us to always strive for something exciting, fresh and relevant.
