The Veneta site will open in mid-January and Mike will spearhead its connection to the Veneta / Eugene Community and help the center grow.  “We expect the Veneta center to eventually be at around 300 people.  Congratulation to Mike – he has done an outstanding job making FCR a destination employer in Coos Bay and leading a culture of excellence there with his colleagues.  We look forward to him doing the same in Veneta,” Katheryn Carnahan, Senior VP, shared.

“The foundation of First Call Resolution continues to be its focus on finding, retaining and promoting A players,” Matthew Achak, Chief Revenue Officer, added. “Both Mike and Aaron have proven to be truly adept leaders during their time at FCR and we couldn’t be prouder to see both of them move into their new roles.”

Aaron started with FCR as the Training & Quality Manager and recently transitioned to Program Manager in the Roseburg center.  Aaron has over 15 years of call center & customer service experience.  He is extremely focused on developing his teams and doing excellent work for our customers. Aaron and Mike will be working closely together over the next 6 weeks to ensure a smooth transition.
