October 9, 2017
Veteran business leader to take growing call center consultancy to the next level
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 9, 2017
Minneapolis, MN: Call Center Sales Pro, a leading call center consultancy, announced that Chris Calhoun has joined their team to fill the newly created position of vice president of operations. In this role, Calhoun’s primary focus is on optimizing the existing infrastructure of the company to maximize the effectiveness of the staff so that they can serve their clients even better.
Janet Livingston, founder of Call Center Sales Pro and the visionary dynamo behind the company’s rapid growth, brought Calhoun on board to provide added structure to her mission to serve the call center industry.
“I’m thrilled to have Chris join the Call Center Sales Pro family,” Livingston said. “Chris brings the leadership and team building skills to the table that will allow us to better scale Call Center Sales Pro. This will enable us to provide more services, products, and innovations to the call center and contact center industry.”
“I am extremely excited about joining Call Center Sales Pro,” Calhoun said. “I look forward to bringing my thirty plus years of leadership, management, and systematic approach to human performance to the Call Center Sales Pro team. Together we will do great things.”
After a distinguished career in the U. S. Coast Guard, Calhoun built on his exacting military training to take key leadership roles in technology companies. In his last two positions, he served as senior performance analyst and director of operations. His experience at both companies fits nicely into his new role as vice president of operations for Call Center Sales Pro.
What started as an idea to help telephone answering services and outsource call centers, soon grew to include national corporate call centers, hospitals, and large medical clinics. “We have a lot to offer the healthcare industry in terms of telecommunications expertise and call center knowledge,” Livingston added. “We have the team to make things happen, and we’re already becoming a respected provider in the healthcare industry. Chris will add the structure we need to enable us to serve this market with greater excellence.”
