Proxama has grown rapidly in the last two years to become one of the world’s leading NFC specialists, and the opportunities that are available for growth make it a very attractive company to help grow. There is a huge amount of talent in the senior management team and the company has already shown its ambition for growth by opening an office in New York to make inroads into the North American market.
