“These credentials make Wayne the perfect person to drive our business operations and take the company to the next level, so I am thrilled to welcome him into the role.”

Silver added: “One Marketing is a fantastic company with huge potential. As well as having an excellent portfolio of retained clients, we have a very strong new business pipeline and an exceptional team in place to help businesses achieve their marketing objectives.
