Hedley Aylott, co-founder and CEO of Summit said: “The appointment of experienced senior talent, such as Kristina, forms a vital part in achieving our growth plans. She comes from RS Components, exactly the kind of company we want to work with, and has invaluable insight from both client and agency side. She is going to be a fantastic asset to the company at this exciting time. ”

Kalpokaite added: “It’s a hugely important time for Summit and I’m thrilled to join the team and be part of this journey. I’m looking forward to using my experience to help deliver Summit’s ambitious growth targets.”
