Lee said: “Andrew and I have a shared vision around how modern businesses should ethically operate and having assessed Field Recruitment, VHO and TBG I am genuinely confident that organic and farmed growth will occur in all three businesses. We have great staff and clients who will help us meet our ambitious targets for 2017 and beyond.”
