Over 10 years ago, Mervin Budram conceptualized TAS Belize while vacationing in Maine, Oregon. He had an idea to create a company that would impact the youth of Belize through creating jobs, providing training and giving excellent service to the public & private sector. He sketched what would become the company’s logo on a piece of paper and in 2009, he launched the company with a Toshiba laptop & a set of AKG headphones. Technological Advancement Services (TAS) list of services quickly grew as Mervin & his team did what they needed to do to stay afloat.
In 2018, Mervin had an opportunity to participate in the Young Leaders of America Initiative (YLAI) where he learned better ways of doing business while being socially responsible and he acquired the tools he needed to build a healthy business community. As 2019 came to a close Mervin knew the TAS team could not step into 2020 doing things the same way.
With the help of Melanie Escalante, a performance & life coach in Belize, they were able to reevaluate the direction for TAS; who we are, why we do what we do and where we are going as a company. What emerged is a vision that not only communicates the core of who we are but, just as importantly, sets the direction in which we are all excited to the journey.
