In addition, the role is responsible for team members’ adaptation to work culture centered around the company’s mission, values and vision.

In 2017, the publicity reach of 64.6 billion print, online and broadcast impressions were generated for a calculated publicity value of more than $600 million. The figures equate to four times the amount achieved just two years prior.
