CEO Founder, Arden Group
TMS have proved an invaluable resource to me and my Management Team over the last two and a half years. Their ability to grasp an issue, understand the implications and to map out an agreed solution on a consensus basis is first class. TMS are politically savvy and skilled negotiators, I can wholeheartedly recommend their services
I have had the privilege to work with TMS for some 10 years at companies including Azzurri Communications, Calyx Managed Services and M-hance software. Whether in an executive or non-exec role TMS rapidly get to the heart of the issue and deliver structured and practical solutions to improve the business and drive value.
TMS were instrumental in helping ITC to develop our value drivers in preparation for presentations to potential acquirers and creation of our Information Memorandum. Their knowledge of the managed security services market and his understanding of our business was key in teasing out and interpreting the plethora of data available to create meaningful management information. TMS were always available to discuss issues and proved to be an invaluable sounding board. Their advice and professionalism throughout the process have been major contributors to our success.
