The team at TTS mixes together all of the ingredients we believe are required for a successful software development company: highly talented and energetic software developers, architects and testers, all recruited through a rigorous process, analytical minds that can understand the nuances of our clients businesses, the methodical project managers and designers, driven management with a focus for quality and delivery, and the innovators that transform the way we look at things.
Chris MarchChief Executive Officer
Chris founded TTS in 1994 after leaving his position of CIO at Gold Medal Travel. During his eleven years at Gold Medal he developed their entire software platform from the ground up that allowed Gold Medal to become one of the biggest UK travel consolidators.
One of the early TTS projects was the development of the original Lastminute.com solution, the company that introduced travel to the digital era. As a keen advocate of utlising the latest technologies available and his deep understanding of the travel technology domain Chris continues to ensure TTS travel clients embrace and benefit from faster and more efficient automated solutions.
Outside of TTS Chris is a keen golfer, completing 100 holes for charity during 2016 in one day. He's completed the flying kilometer on skis reaching a top speed of just under 117mph and holds a fixed wing pilots license with 450 hours under his belt. Among other outstanding ambitions is the desire to climb Kilimanjaro and to do his final take off in the plane from which he does his first parachute jump.
