Alexander Rossi: "From our first meeting I was very comfortable with ICM management and approach; we hit it off right away and I’m keen to get to work and build upon the momentum of 2016. It’s important to build on the business side of what we do, and we have a massive opportunity over the next few years. ICM is a great fit and I’m fortunate to have them as part of our team. This next chapter is going to be fun."
