Quality is never in question, as she doesn’t step away from the keyboard until each story is clear, engaging and illuminating. You might expect this kind of relentless workhorse to develop a surly attitude over time, but Bethan is cherished at Wise for her cheerful professionalism and a desire to become better tomorrow than she is today.

Building deep relationships with our contacts and obsessively focusing on hitting their goals has put us in a position to unlock incremental budgets and higher payouts. At the same time, they have worked hard to sign new contracts, gain compliance approvals and onboard 40+ new partners via the XL Media Migration.

And they’re fun.
