Lisa leaves to join the team in Wales with new skills and knowledge in digital advertising. The central and local teams will miss her enthusiasm, energy and drive. We wish her every success in her new role.”
Lisa said: “I am delighted to be returning to South West Wales Media. It is a centre that is very close to my heart having worked in the business for so long previously. It has great people and great products with a true community focus. I look forward to taking my recent experience as Sales Director back to the region and making a real difference.
