Financial services PR consultancy MRM will manage corporate communications for Target Group, a financial services and software company.

Target Group manages lending, investment and insurance portfolios for over 50 financial institutions worth in excess of $24bn (£18m).

Ian Larkin, co-group CEO at Target Group, said: “The team at MRM has shown itself to have the depth of ability and experience across financial services and the enthusiasm to consistently deliver. The blend of senior talent we have access to means that we had no hesitation appointing MRM as our PR and communications consultancy.”

As well as the group’s day to day communications, MRM also handled the comms around the recent transaction which saw private equity firm Pollen Street Capital sell Target Group to Indian IT provider Tech Mahindra (May 2016).

Chris Tuite, associate director at MRM, added: “Target Group is going from strength to strength. The acquisition by Tech Mahindra will help the dedicated management team there to build on a number of years of strong growth and continue with its expansion plans. The senior team at Target has put its faith in MRM to assist with this phase of the company’s development and we couldn’t be more pleased to be able to play our part in that process.”
