Welcome 2018. Welcome to the future.

“As the year comes to an end, I would like to acknowledge endlessly the incredible people who make TADS happen.”

From the desk of our CEO Aaron Dahmen:

“To my right-hand man Connor Clements, thank you for being there whenever I or the brand needs you. Thank you especially, for putting up with all my late night brain dumps and ridiculous brainstorms – thank you for being a legend to share the journey with. The pleasure is all mine.

To one of the most amazing mentors and marketing managers in the game, thank you Simon Johnston for your consistent support and unfailing commitment to helping us push through any barriers we might face.

To our fantastic family, I am consistently amazed by what you produce. It is an honour to work with you Jason Renau, Milan Caird, Callum McKenzie, Gordon Gore, Jimmy Banks and Alexander Goldsmith. I am excited to see what the future holds as we add even more members to our ever-growing team.

To those departing, or who left us this year – thank you for your contributions Pat Armitstead, Chris Holden, Benjamin Hill, Fang Tuigamala and Josh Robinson.

My thoughts yes and Spark, your support has been nothing short of phenomenal. Once again, I can only say thank you.

Black Yellow White and TotalFootball (especially Ahmed Osman), our partnerships are a privilege. Thank you for the opportunities.

In the case of 2017 specifically, a huge thanks for the amazing work of Kii Small, Lewis Brewer and Thomas Baird who put together BITESIZED as part of our election year coverage. It was truly fantastic.

And finally, TO YOU. The most important part of our puzzle.

For the support and critiques, the love and respect – I thank you wholeheartedly for an amazing year on your social media feeds, mobile devices and wherever you consume your favourite multimedia content.

Thank you for being there and sticking up for our dream. Without you, nothing would be possible.

Wishing you a safe and enjoyable 2018 – welcome to the future.
