Angus and Sandra have a proven track record separately and together, are very modern thinkers and are both very nice people. It's just brilliant to have them in the group."
Says Hennah: "I'm really looking forward to working with Tony and Rob, Matty and Dave and the whole team. Special has taken off both here and Australia. It's an exciting time to come onboard a place with real momentum, and I'm sure my experience on both sides of the Tasman can be put to good use."
