As anyone launching a start-up will know, it is a hugely challenging journey, one that has thankfully reaped success and I, along with my talented team, are excited about the next stage of XINTEC’s journey and the many opportunities available. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Sean for his continued support and I look forward to working with him in his new role.”

I have every confidence in Rob’s ability to drive the organisation as we embark on our next growth phase, backed by a very capable team of professionals.”
