Telvista, Inc., a leader in contact center solutions in the United States, announced today that it will bring approximately 150 new full-time jobs to the area, adding to its existing headcount for a total of over 650 jobs.

“Telvista has thrived in Danville since opening its facility in April 2005, and we celebrate the addition of 150 new jobs in a region that continues to rebound economically,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “As we work to build a new Virginia economy, it is essential that we create 21st century jobs that provide diverse and sustainable employment opportunities and ensure that we are not over-reliant on federal spending. We thank Telvista for its commitment to the Commonwealth. This is the second expansion that Telvista has announced in the past 18 months, and we are thrilled when our existing businesses are successful and participating in the growth we are seeing across Virginia.”

“Business expansion is the most promising source of job growth in the Commonwealth,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones. “Telvista has benefitted from the talented workforce, superior infrastructure and pro business climate in Danville and surrounding area to operate a business that’s growing. Congratulations to Telvista, Danville and the people in the region on this announcement.”

"Since launching the Danville operation in 2005, the Danville community has provided the right mix of labor availability, quality and cost structure," said Lisa Wallace, Site Director of Telvista, Inc. "The announcement today comes from the company’s growth due to the addition of a new customer and program to support sales and service of a popular vehicle diagnostic tool and road side assistance services."

“I am delighted to share Telvista’s good news with the citizens of Danville and the surrounding region," said Danville Mayor Sherman Saunders. "One hundred fifty jobs in Danville is a tremendous boost to our region’s economy and continues to build on the tremendous growth we’ve seen at Telvista since its location in our city. On behalf of my colleagues on city council, our staff and all our citizens, I send our heartfelt thanks to Telvista for this wonderful news.”

Wallace noted that there will be bilingual opportunities available for potential job seekers. The new positions will offer competitive wage rates and monthly bonuses based on metric attainment, Wallace added.

Applications are being accepted for the new positions at Telvista and are available online at www.telvista.com.
