DT Global has announced that it has divested its Malaga-based digital communications business unit, which is trading as Aninver Development Partners S.L. as of 15 Feb. 2023 under the ownership of the de la Maza family.
Malaga, Spain (14 March, 2023): As part of its regular strategic planning process, DT Global conducted a review to ensure an uncompromising focus on its vision to positively impact 500 million lives by 2045.
