Our rebrand will be bolstered by Mango’s diverse range of expertise, national team, and progressive strategic and creative approach. We can’t wait to launch this exciting offering with Mango by our side.”

“We are excited to be supporting The Edge as they further tap into youth culture – making an impact, sharing stories and creating connections. The brand’s history, future plans and unique offering set it up for a huge year in 2022,” she added.
