Atomic 212° national chief executive officer, Claire Fenner, said: “Atomic 212° has a unique positioning and focus. We live and breathe creating faster, smarter, accountable media that produces outstanding results for our clients.
“We’re going from strength to strength as a business thanks to the talent, passion and professionalism of our people – and our clients – so thank you all.”
Atomic 212° national managing director, Rory Heffernan, said: “Atomic 212° Out Of Office was the first time we’ve taken all our staff away from the office for an offsite. It was an incredible three days of work, fun, sharing ideas, planning and celebrating our most important asset: our people. We’re all looking forward to the next one!”
