Fast paced, global defence and contingent workforce company TBW Global has led great, innovative changes in the defence industry. Using state-of-the art technology, TBW Global operate and deploy expert linguists, training personnel and other specialist contractors into areas of conflict around the globe. By breaking down communication barriers, TBW Global ensure that defence and security organisations can scale and achieve their objectives.
Over the last year, thebigword Group founded by Executive Chairman Larry Gould has gone through great changes – the creation of two businesses with their own independent identities. The translation and Interpreting business thebigword is now led by Nihat Arkan, whilst Defence business TBW Global is led by Joshua Gould. Having the two separate businesses has proved successful, as the increased focus has led to all round growth across the Group, which now has a combined revenue in excess of $100m.
In June, TBW Global opened up its latest office in Washington DC to support its long-term goals of becoming a major Defence contractor to the US government. TBW Global currently supply the US Army, Navy and State Department as well as NATO with outstanding services and are looking to further build and expand on their early success.
Alongside language and cultural awareness solutions, TBW Global has diversified their services to include human intelligence (HUMINT), training and security, travel risk management, multilingual intercepts, role-plays and situational scenarios, learning management technologies and staff augmentation.
Recently, TBW Global has secured major deals with the US Army to supply role-players to its base in Germany, as well as the MOD and NATO to supply frontline language support in conflict-zones. Over the last few years TBW Global has gone from a start-up to operating sophisticated teams in Afghanistan, Germany, Iraq, UK, Ukraine and the US, as well as temporary teams in Bosnia and Oman. This has made the company particularly advantageous to NATO countries and positioned them well for future contract wins.
TBW Global CEO Joshua Gould said: “Our growth is a result of having an incredible team and a reputation for delivering on our promises. We have successfully married the latest in automation and recruiting technologies to people-based-services, to bring formidable solutions to long-time challenges that the Defence industry has faced.”
TBW Global proudly secured the title of ‘ATC’s Company of the Year’ alongside its Executive Clare Riches being named ‘Rising Star’ at the Barclays Yorkshire Women in Business Awards 2018.
TBW Global is a fast an exciting business which unusually, for the sector is led by a millennial who is taking the approach of building scalable human resource services backed by best in class technologies.
