Sprint to build call center in Sullivan Co.

15 November 2011

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.

South Portland call center expanding

11 October 2011

SOUTH PORTLAND - The start of the new Supreme Court session this
week has thrust "Obamacare" into the spotlight, given the fear - or
hope, depending on your point of view - that the plan will be
declared unconstitutional. But Jeff Forbes, chief executive officer
of South Portland-based SironaHealth says the only thing in danger
is the law's mandate that all Americans buy health insurance.

That's good news, he says, because other parts of the law
explain why his company is expanding.

Last month, SironaHealth grew by one-third, increasing to 17,832
square feet the space it leases in the building that houses its
corporate headquarters, at 500 Southborough Drive. The company
plans to hire 20 non-clinical workers for its medical call center
by year's end, and even more in 2012.
