Jamie Jefferson and Mark Jenkins

Test Driven Solutions, one of the North East’s fastest-growing technology companies, has announced the hire of Mark Jenkins as Director of Client Engagement.

Boasting over 35 years of experience in the IT sector, Mark brings a wealth of knowledge from a vast range of sectors. Having started as a developer and worked up to managing client engagements, he has worked with companies in corporate financial services, retail, government and the wider Public Sector, adding further industry expertise and knowledge to TDS.

Mark commented: “I first met Sam [Clark, TDS founder] in the early days in 2021, and I was very impressed by the company’s set-up and their laser-like focus on engineering excellence, quality and commitment to positive company values and culture.

Of all the companies that I’ve encountered, TDS seemed to best match my own values and ways of working. The company has real ambition but wants to do things ‘the right way’ which I love.”


Jamie Jefferson, Managing Director of Test Driven Solutions, commented: “We’re so excited to be bringing Mark on board – our ability to attract someone of his calibre and experience is testament to the company and culture we’re building here.

I’m confident that Mark’s expertise will help us further improve our clients’ journey with TDS and allow us to build upon solid foundations going forward.”

Since incorporation in 2020, Test Driven Solutions has expanded from its Newcastle headquarters to offices in Poland and Canada, and continues to be a leading supplier of software consultants for their clients across a range of industries.
