"I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a talented group of people in the dynamic work environment that exists at ZoomerMedia. My experiences in doing so over these past seven years have served to benefit my professional development significantly. I wish Moses and the company the best of success in the future," said Vickers.

"I'd like to thank David for his many years of service to ZoomerMedia. I think we both grew in the process. In particular, I want to point out and thank him for a professional handover to his successor,” said Moses.
