Why Mayo

"It would be easy to say that the main reason CMS was set up in Mayo was because the CEO is from the area but a company as successful as this needs to have strong pillars in place to sustain its prosperity. These pillars include a good local talent base of young graduates to work with. Good access to its London base via Knock Airport is another crucial deciding factor in the decision for Mayo. In addition to this, the cost of the companies overheads are low with the premises and resources cost effective."
