We’re here to support the rest of the Group and all our clients, embedding technology ideation all the way to delivery and ongoing support. Everything we do is CX-driven, meaning the customer comes first. We build technology for people matching the tech to the need, not the users to the tech. MTS has product and engineering teams working in both the UK and New Zealand, which gives our clients a 'follow the sun' service offering and quicker resolution for urgent digital challenges.”

Owen Rees, TMG CEO and co-founder, said: “The introduction of MTS is the next logical step for The Maverick Group. I’m hugely excited about the digital space and can’t wait to see what MTS will achieve.”
