We run two closely-held separate businesses out of the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, VA. Although the companies are separate, the office space, principals, ownership and entrepreneurial environment are shared. Our atmosphere is casual but focused, fun but sometimes intense. Global Telesourcing’s small corporate office is based in Arlington with its actual operation located in Monterrey, Mexico. We are a premium provider of native-level English inbound and outbound call center services for Fortune 1000 US companies. Most of our employees – although living in Mexico – spent the formative years of their life in the US. This gives them unaccented language skills and total cultural comfort working on behalf of American companies. We are the only non-US sales call center authorized to handle English-language work for two Fortune 200 companies. Global Telesourcing was named to the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in America.
