“Our firm and The Murphy Group have teamed up as true strategic partners in our business development initiatives. We had made a decision to focus on the global convenience sector to grow our penetration of retail kiosk solutions, and sought out TMG to assist us in this process. TMG has helped us to focus on targeted retailer clients, as well as participated in the entire process from initial solicitation to negotiations through to contracting and implementation. Their global experience and knowledge in the fuels and convenience retailing industry has resulted in profitable growth for our firm."
