RICHMOND - Governor Mark R. Warner today made six job announcements totaling 834 new jobs across Virginia. Telvista, Inc., a global company specializing in customer service contact centers and technical support, will invest $1.1 million in technology upgrades to expand staffing at its Danville facility. The company will hire an additional 250 team members, expanding from 500 to 750 team members by the end of 2006.
“Telvista officially opened its Danville facility in April 2005 and within nine months had already hired its 500th team member,” said Governor Warner. “Now, in less than one year, the company will hire an additional 250 employees. These jobs will help the region rebound and I want to thank the company for its investment in Danville and the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
With U.S. headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Telvista provides contact center services and related professional services at facilities throughout the United States and Mexico. The company’s mid-size and Fortune 1000 clients experience improved customer satisfaction, enhanced efficiency, and reduced costs as they partner with Telvista to optimize their customer relationship operations. Telvista’s technology, processes and people become an extension of its clients and a trusted partner in their success.
“Danville has a great pool of friendly, smart, and dependable people who provide superior service to our clients,” says David Allen, Chief Operating Officer for Telvista. “This level of service has impressed our clients and enabled our Danville team to grow faster than expected. Danville’s community leaders have also provided tremendous support and a business-friendly environment during this year of rapid growth.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the City of Danville to secure the project for Virginia. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will also support the project with training assistance through its Workforce Services Jobs Investment Program.
“We greatly value our relationship with Telvista and their strong commitment to our community,” said Danville City Manager, Jerry L. Gwaltney. “As we continue to aggressively diversify and grow our economy, Televista is a great example of Danville’s robust future. With this growth we expect Telvista to quickly become one of Danville’s top three private sector employers.”
