Our future requires a deep understanding of innovative concepts, and this opportunity to spread the gospel onto another continent couldn’t be passed up. We are all excited about this new path forward!"
One Fiinix Live Founder and CEO Jon Ollier said: “This business was built on creative ideas, entrepreneurship and personalities and John has all these attributes. The passion, drive and work ethic that John possesses is just incredibly infectious and added to his experience in this industry, makes his arrival an incredibly exciting prospect for us. John will continue to be based in the US but will work remotely as part of our London based team and his diverse roster of clients, most of whom he already books internationally, will further extend the global reach of our company.”
