Commenting on Teo’s appointment, Lochan said, “As our digital and real worlds seamlessly merge into one experience, technology is becoming a key cornerstone of marketing.

Gary as the leader of our Technology Practice is perfect – an entrepreneur who has solid technology experience in the marketing space.”

On his new role, Teo said, “Digital is and will always be in my blood. I enjoy learning from the various industries that my work has exposed me to and embrace the opportunity to apply a freshand creative perspective to problems in those domains. Work is a lifestyle in my opinion and as such, it is imperative that I work with and for motivated and intelligent minds creating solutions that we pride ourselves in.”
