We know that after our FHIXers have walked up what feels like a thousand flights of stairs, the first thing they need is to be greeted with enthusiasm. At The Fhitting Room, we are fortunate to have a front desk team full of welcoming FHIT Relations Managers. Our FHIT Relations Managers not only smile, welcome you and hand over towels, but they are also our bloggers, analysts, creative minds and so much more. Read on to learn more about our fabulous business whizzes.
