We’ve even grown as a team and welcomed in a highly sought after C hief Financial Officer, Mr. Geoff Bicknell. We’re incredibly fortunate to have Mr. Bicknell on board and know his skills and expertise will greatly enhance Savtira’s overall progress.

We made many great connections, learned more about our industry and shared information about what Savtira is working on as well.
