The Myers Group doubles size of call center operations in Duluth, creates 50 new jobs

In partnership with the Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development, The Myers Group, leading healthcare survey administrator and organically grown Gwinnett company, will expand and relocate their operations from three office buildings to one large one, doubling in size. The expansion includes the lease of a 33,000 square foot building that will house all facility operations including their call center, mail services, survey administration, marketing and sales. This expansion will bring up to 50 new jobs and additional capital investment to the community.

“Our company was founded in 1993 based on a vision to serve the healthcare community through valid and reliable survey research and superior customer service,” said A.C. Myers, III, CEO and Founder of The Myers Group. “The success and continued growth of our organization has been built by the people and resources of Gwinnett County, and we look forward to continuing to create jobs and opportunities for Gwinnettians.”

“The Myers Group has a long standing history of success in Gwinnett County,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Vice-Chair, Shirley Lassester. “Our county works together with leaders from the community to make sure we are not only recruiting companies but growing those Gwinnett-born businesses like, The Myers Group.”

The new facility, located at 1965 Evergreen Boulevard in Duluth, includes a corporate office, a state-of-the-art call center, and operations.

“The Gwinnett Chamber awarded The Myers Group our Pinnacle Small Business award in 2009,” said Lauren Salas, senior business development manager for corporate and regional headquarters at the Gwinnett Chamber. “Their success and this expansion are a testament to the outstanding business environment we have in Gwinnett.”

Named to the INC 500 list of fastest-growing privately held companies in the country for 2003, The Myers Group has maintained their status, ranking 124 on the list with a five-year sales growth of 1,266 percent.
