Answering service company Call Experts will create 310 new jobs over the next five years as the company completes a $1.8-million expansion to its operations in Charleston County, South Carolina.
The company is based in Charleston, and has grown since its 1982 launch into one of the largest telephone answering service and call center providers in North America, offering an array of services such as contact centers, virtual receptionists and call center solutions.
“We started our company in Charleston and we are a people-oriented business,” Call Experts president Abby Leibowitz Pearson said. “The work ethic we have encountered here has been unmatched. We look forward to our expansion and continuing to contribute to growth in our multi-faceted community. I am proud to be a native Charlestonian and that this business environment has enabled us to bring our services around the world from this exceptional city.”
