It is a testament to our success and growth that we have been able to attract someone of Jeremy’s calibre from a major firm.
“We have built a successful and increasingly popular global hybrid voice and screen-based broking platform for energy and Jeremy will be central to our plans to evolve the service to embrace new markets and new ways of working with our expanding client base. I’m delighted that he has chosen to join us at this critical time.”
