DMA TELESERVICES COUNCIL HONORS GARY TAYLOR
THE DMA TELESERVICES COUNCIL HONORS GARY TAYLOR WITH AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN TELESERVICES
New York, July 7, 2005 -The DMA Teleservices Council today announced that Gary Taylor, president, InfoCision Management Corporation (IMC), is the recipient of the Teleservices Excellence Award for outstanding performance in the teleservices industry. The award was presented at The DMA's annual Teleservices Conference held June 22-24 in Orlando, Fl.
Taylor, an MBA graduate from the University of Akron, has more than 28 years experience in direct marketing, fundraising, advertising, and the teleservice industry. In 1982, working out of his home, he started IMC.
IMC developed outbound telemarketing programs for its clients and three years later in 1985, began making telephone calls internally, starting with just four "communicators" on the phones. Today, InfoCision has grown into the third largest privately held teleservices company in the world, employing more than 3,000.
Under Taylor's leadership, InfoCision has appeared in the top 100 on the Inc. 500 list, which recognizes the fastest growing companies in the country. IMC has won numerous awards for public service as its employees are well known for supporting a wide array of local, national, and international charities and philanthropic endeavors and raising more money for nonprofit organizations than any other teleservice company.
In 2003, Taylor received the Pioneers Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing the impact he has had on the industry. The University of Akron awarded him the prestigious Simonetti Distinguished Business Alumni Award in recognition of his outstanding business career.
