It’s not just the product though, the values Bearhug possess are a great fit for me. My first official activity in the new role, hasn’t been business or sales focused, I’ve been down to a local rugby club to help the junior and senior teams at training, sharing my knowledge with the grass roots of the game. It’s brilliant that the brand focus is on supporting people enjoy their passion in any form. I’m now really excited to help Bearhug achieve our aggressive growth plans.”
