THE INNOVATORS.

Meet the TTSG Team

Our team genuinely cares about our customers. Each one of our staff members encourages and believes in transparency. We prove this by providing excellent service to every company we work with, no matter how big or how small. As a small team, we are able to react faster than larger companies.

Think about a semi-truck and a small car making a U-turn. The small car can make the turn quicker and easier than the semi. That’s precisely how to approach customer service. We are ready to take care of your document management needs quickly and efficiently with personalized service that fits your business.

Founder

Tim Ward

Tim’s most impressive professional achievement is arguably the creation and establishment of his company, TTSG in St. Charles. “Started from a cardboard box,” is the way he describes the humble beginnings of the business. He started TTSG in 2010 amid our country’s greatest economic downturn and recession in decades.

The then twenty-nine-year-old entrepreneur set out to create a niche for himself. Tim wanted to use his business mind to help others by servicing the needs of markets trying to understand and access the growing offerings of technological advancement. His primary mission is to help business owners understand their current state of affairs so that they can make informed, intelligent decisions, and take action toward stabilizing and building their companies.
