  • I have known Warren since 2008, when he offered me a job as an ad trafficker at DQ&A. He was my first experience of a boss and I can boldly say, I was a lucky one to have him as my manager. Warren has exceptional people and communication skills, always dealt with everyone as equals and offered an open door policy that made me feel like a part of the team. I would say any team that has Warren on board is set, as he is dedicated, of sound judgement, reliable and to top it: hardworking.
    Thank you Wazza for my great years at DQA! all the best.
