(GWINNETT-METRO ATLANTA) September 8, 2020– Moneypenny joined Georgia Department of Economic Development and Partnership Gwinnett to announce the opening of its new offices in unincorporated Gwinnett County, metro Atlanta, Georgia. The announcement represents 100 jobs and $860,000 in capital investment for the community.
VoiceNation and Ninja Number, part of the Moneypenny family, are America’s leading answering service, offering call answering services 24 hours a day to companies across the U.S. VoiceNation is an award-winning bilingual telephone answering provider and Ninja Number is a cutting-edge business phone app which provides a virtual phone system for entrepreneurs.
Moneypenny is expanding its offices in Atlanta as the business rapidly grows. Its new space will be located at 2915 Premiere Parkway, in unincorporated Duluth, located within the Sugarloaf CID. The company is expected to hire more than 100 employees in 2020-2021.
“We are delighted that VoiceNation and Ninja Number are moving into our new state-of-the-art offices in Georgia,” said Joanna Swash, CEO of Moneypenny. “Our outsourced communications business is growing, and we are looking forward to having new offices which can accommodate a growing team to manage our call answering and live chat on behalf of thousands of businesses. We have very ambitious growth plans and will be launching some technology products and services.”
VoiceNation and Ninja Number were recently acquired by Moneypenny, the UK’s leading outsourced communications provider. Moneypenny was looking to increase its scale and service offering in the U.S. and was looking to acquire businesses with a good product, service and cultural fit with the Moneypenny brand. VoiceNation and Ninja Number were the perfect fit.
