Three is developing how we partner with customers and how we manage their data to deliver a range of digital products and commercial opportunities, ranging from offers and rewards, to targeted advertising, to carrier billing and many more besides. We also support the Marketing and Brand teams, bringing compelling propositions and challenging advertising to the market. The MMI team manages contractual relations with a range of partners, agencies and suppliers.
