Sprint to build call center in Sullivan Co.Share on Twitter
Local economic development officials say they didn’t mean to
steal a call center and the 600-plus jobs that come with it from their
neighbors on the other side of State Street – all they knew was that a
telecommunications company wanted a brand-new facility in the area.
“Imagine our surprise when we found out the client
was Sprint,” said Richard Venable, president of the NETWORKS-Sullivan
Partnership, a locally-funded economic development group that worked
with state and local officials to make the call center deal happen.
