Our Sales team is made up of high calibre and ambitious talent.  We are currently 13 strong and due to high client demand, development of our hugely powerful on-demand platform solution and latest investment package, we are looking to grow this number significantly over the remainder of 2017.

What makes Sales at TalMix so exciting?
