Meet the Team
…that makes it all happen.
TMServe is a Peoples Company. As a bespoke client-centered service provider, what we do, what we are and what we can do is based on the people that make up our company and work with us. That is why we try to be the best and constantly improve ourselves, to select and work with the best in their field, to have a strong team spirit and passion with what we do, and to work very closely with our clients on a personal level. Since the demands, in volume and subject matter, are varied and we have to depend at times on trusted subcontractors that are experts in their field, we do have a small internal full-time team the main core of which is presented below:
