Muncaster added: “Paulina brings an incredible passion and energy that has been an integral part of our business success over the years. She is results orientated, strategically smart, tech-savvy, embraces creativity and possesses amazing problem-solving skills. I’m very fortunate to work with so many talented and wonderful people and in this instance to have such a complementary partnership with someone that shares the same ambition for our business and clients is simply incredible.”

Embart said: “It’s such an exciting time to be stepping into this role. I’m humbled to be able to continue working closely with our incredible team and honoured to partner with all our wonderful clients. Being part of a business that helps ambitious brands align around purpose and make a meaningful contribution to unlock their growth potential is pretty special and I’m ready to hit go.”
