The time had definitely come for a Chief of Operations and Jean de Crane has the background and the attitude to help us achieve our goals of operational excellence and profitability whilst working with our 400+ professionals around the world. Just recently we were awarded the Gold Seal of e-Excellence by the European Multi-media Forum1 for our innovative marketing strategy and delivery. I am very proud of our team and hope that with Jean’s appointment we will extend this to ‘gold levels’ on Operational Excellence as a whole. We wish him every success in this new role.”
