“We are delighted to reward Bianca for her hard work and commitment in this way’, says company Director & Founder, David Holt. “Over the last four years, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing her creative ability and ideas grow in stature, along with her increasing ability to control and deliver entire projects.”
