Welcome your new South East Regional Director
Marcus Clifford is your new South East Regional Director.
Taking over looking after the South East Region alongside the Eastern is going to be really interesting as there is so much great and positive energy and fantastic diversity of businesses across both regions. I feel the sector is full of opportunity and some great business models exist and I am looking forward to working with you and for you.
I hear from Bob Davies regularly and he tells me he is walking some 50 miles a week as part of his new regime. I did say to him not to be like Forrest Gump and stop now and again for a rest.
