Claire Hungate, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“When I took over the role as CEO of Brave Bison almost 10 months ago I said I could see ‘green shoots’ of opportunity after a period of upheaval. The business required focus and nurturing in a fast changing, highly competitive and fragmented market. These half year results show growth and consolidation as we begin to see the benefits of our new direction powered by strategy, origination and distribution. We’ve streamlined the business in preparation for strategic investment to deliver future growth, and we will continue to see delivery on this investment as we head into 2019.”
