In 2009, we began our on-going process of evolving our company to be a more comprehensive provider of business services, expertise and technology to our advertising and entertainment clients. This expansion has included the purchase of several business affairs companies and our move into Canada with the acquisition of Toronto-based Talent Payment Services, Canada’s premier payroll provider for performers in advertising. In 2012 The TEAM Companies was formed as the parent company to these individual entities and in 2015 we consolidated our U.S. operations under The TEAM Companies moniker. While we have competitors in every sector, no other company provides a suite of offerings as comprehensive as ours, a pool of subject matter experts as deep as ours, or the level of customer-focused service that we provide.
