A Few Words About Call Center Sales Pro

Call Center Sales Pro was at its inception a consultancy formed in 2014 by then Minneapolis-based Janet Livingston to help outsource call centers and telephone answering services take the pain out of growing their business. Janet Livingston, CEO of Call Center Sales Pro, is a call center and telephone answering service veteran, with twenty–five years of industry experience. She functions as a revenue growth authority helping leading telephone answering services and call centers expand their businesses and increase profitability. As the consulting side of the business grew, we received many requests to start our own call center / answering service due to the expertise of our upper management team.

Call Center Sales Pro now operates 4 call centers geographically dispersed across the United States in Seymour, TN, Berkley, CA, Redding, CA and Toledo, OH. Our corporate office is strategically located near Knoxville Tennessee, selected for its quality workforce and low cost of living. This stable geographic region, in the heartland of America, provides the ideal place to further hone our identity and grow our corporate culture, one infused with time-honored American values. Our motto sums this up nicely: “Number one in quality, number one in customer service, and number one in value.”
