James Taylor MD


I like to manage some of our company’s key contracts in Leisure, Facilities Management and Garden Centre sectors.

I also manage the key account managers and sales support team. I believe exceptional customer service is essential for a successful business; getting out and visiting clients is a great relationship builder and something I enjoy.

We all work very hard to ensure the TMD customer experience is the best it can be.


I previously travelled the world for 5 years, combining work with my love of skiing and water sports. I spent several seasons in the French Alps, Menorca, Australia, Hawaii, Canada and Italy teaching skiing and watersports. I started TMD on my return to the UK in 1993.


I spend most of my time outside work with my family and friends. We are very lucky to live in such a wonderful part of the UK so I make the most of the coast and surrounding area as much as I can. I am a keen ‘waterman’. I enjoy paddle boarding (SUP) and spending time taking our boat out to sea, fishing for mackerel & bass. I also enjoy watching rugby, playing golf, running and keeping fit so I can BBQ and socialise with a clear conscience!
