It is with the greatest pleasure and optimism that I can announce the sale of Brand Impact Merchandising to Orb Group. Orb Group are a creatively driven and future-facing business who are strategically positioned to take your brand forward. Under the stewardship of my good friend Mike Smith, Orb Group have grown into an international company and delivered impressive results for brands such as Aston Martin, Virgin Media and Irn Bru – orbgroup.co.uk.
I will be transitioning my responsibilities to Mike and gradually stepping away from the business. Personally, this is a bittersweet moment for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 30 years in the branded merchandising industry and will miss it. But I am also excited about pursuing new ventures. This is the right time and circumstances for me to move aside.
I want to say a big thank you to all of my client and business partners. It has been a privilege working alongside so many fantastic businesses, brands and people. To have had the opportunity to form enduring relationships with talented individuals who share my passion for the industry is a joy that I will always treasure.
I will not be leaving Brand Impact immediately. During a twelve-month period, I will be acting as a consultant and point of contact to help ensure a smooth transition. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions.
I look forward to witnessing all the benefits and successes that joining Orb Group will undoubtedly bring.
