"This call may be monitored for quality assurance purposes". That famous tag line is the brainchild of Lisa DeFalco, Founder & CEO of TPG Inc. A gutsy and determined woman raised by her grandmother in Newark, Lisa overcame the odds and the voices of naysayers to not only found her company in 1996 but, she also founded the entire industry for quality assurance for customer contact centers. For 26 years Lisa has achieved a masterful "blend" of her time and life by managing a residence in Sarasota and raising (3) children while also expanding and overseeing TPG operations in both Omaha and Huntsville. The Huntsville TPG family has created and is evolving "Anna" an AI-based communication assessment platform. You will thoroughly enjoy hearing Lisa's story.
