Following more than five years of successfully leading Next Media’s digital arm, Next Com’s operations and transforming the brand into the digital powerhouse it is today, Edwin Danze has moved on to becoming our Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), a promotion he has taken with grace.
Danze’s elevation does not come as a shock for many, as he has grounded himself in the sector with a skillset of digital, research, public relations and creativity, among many.
