When our founder and CEO Josh started inurface media in 2008 it was with a strong idea, a lot of determination and a little bit of luck that the brand began to grow. Today, we work with multiple globally recognised clients, and a team across the UK on a host of projects we are proud to put our name to.
Late last year we talked to the BBC, for their CEO secrets series, about one of inurface media’s biggest turning points – our move to London. Josh shares his incite on how and why he made this move and the impact it had on his business at the time and in the years that followed.
