"I started The Point.1888 on my own five years ago and while I knew I'd need strong people around me to make the business a success, I never imagined I'd have such an incredibleleadership team in place today," says Will Stewart, managing director, The Point.1888. "This has been a disastrous 12 months for businesses all over the world, but our team has demonstrated remarkable resilience and strength and the promotions are all undoubtedly well deserved."
As with the new appointments announced in January, each promotion will be crucial for its continued growth. It should also allow the agency to fulfill its many plans for 2021, including international licensing programs, transatlantic sporting events, and several product launches.

"To be able to take on even more responsibility and help The Point.1888 continue on its amazing growth trajectory is a dream come true and I'm delighted to have such a strong team working alongside me."
