IOWA CITY, Iowa, Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Mass Markets, the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) call center firm and provider of Cloud Computing, Managed Information Systems (MIS), Platform-as-a-Service (PAAS) provider formerly known as TMone, today announced that Anthony Marlowe is repurchasing the company he sold in 2013 to Jacksonville-based Enhanced Resource Centers (ERC) in its entirety.
As of October 1, MCI (Marlowe Companies Incorporated) will officially acquire TMone. Following the acquisition, TMone will be renamed Mass Markets to reflect the expanding capabilities of the company which will be transformed into a Platform as a Service (PAAS) company.
Mass Markets CEO, Anthony Marlowe was recognized as being among the “Youngest CEOs Under 30” in 2007 and was featured on Inc. Magazine’s List of “Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies” for eight consecutive years.
Marlowe, 36, said he is once again ready to make his mark on the software industry by providing much needed platform solutions in the form of aggregated products and services for enterprises facing new challenges and opportunities stemming from technological advancements, heavy global competition, changing customer expectations, increased security and privacy concerns, new regulations and compliance requirements, and evolving economic conditions both domestically and globally.
“I want to create jobs for Americans, and keep these jobs in America,” Marlowe said. “I am deeply passionate teaching people how to succeed for themselves and their families, as sales, software and customer service professionals.
“Many American companies are one minimum wage increase away from having to shut locations. Fortunately, these new challenges are bringing new opportunities, and I’m launching Mass Markets to help companies minimize these higher costs of doing business by participating in the combined management of information services, modernization of telecom and offering the option to procure and/or utilize Software as a Service (SAAS) with or without temporary or permanent outsourced staff.”
Marlowe was presented with the unique buyback opportunity after ERC elected to exit Telemarketing.
“Mass Markets goal is to revolutionize the status quo,” Marlowe said. “The free market is demanding new efficiencies and smarter solutions and that is precisely what Mass Markets will provide. The bottom line is that we can help clients can move faster, grow larger and solve more problems substantially more efficiently with our revolutionary Anything As A Service (XAAS) platform than with what is currently available, particularly from a single supplier or in house, so we do not anticipate a lack of interest among potential clients.”
Marlowe, who is also co-owner of the NASCAR racing team BK Racing, a Sprint Cup Series Team, is the Principal of Iowa City Capital Partners, and will be the CEO of MCI and Mass Markets and does not intend to exit the software company until an IPO or sale valuing nine figures is reached.
