Robert’s motivation, positive attitude, hard work, and Irish charm have made him a core member of Oyster Partnership’s management team, and we are delighted to announce his promotion to the role of Associate Director.

Sasza Bandiera, Managing Director of Oyster Partnership, said:

“Rob, like all in this industry, has had many highs & lows along the way but we all persevered and all remained motivated. Rob now continues his successful career with a promotion to Associate Director. Job titles are given out far too easily in our industry and I am m happy to say, you have to really earn it here at Oyster Partnership. Rob has.
