Frank Spartalis,

General Manager/ Operations

linked

Frank started working at eight years of age at his parent’s cafe in the Barossa Valley. A great place to grow up as a kid. Frank quickly learnt that if their customers were not satisfied then the family bills weren’t paid. These lessons he uses to this day.

A professional Engineer with a lifelong interest in the classics he is apt to refer to Aristotle and Socrates as well as Erlang and Branson to solve complex problems, motivate teams and change organisational culture.

Frank has over 40 years’ experience across the corporate and government sectors ranging from telecommunications strategy and policy to leadership of multimillion dollar projects.

His long involvement with contact centres had him writing the entire Call Centre strategy for the South Australian Government. A real career highlight was whilst working for the Department of Industry and Trade, Frank attracted corporations to base their contact centres in South Australia which created thousands of local jobs.

Alan brings to his role a strong customer focus, and a real desire to bring Contact 1-2-1 clients and their clients customers, satisfaction, and success through the implementation of quality cost effective contact centre services. Alan’s recent successes in the development of a number Inbound and Outbound contact centre services across a variety of sectors, including Facilities Management, Insurance, IT Help Desk and Finance has been personally rewarding.

Throughout his time at Contact 1-2-1, Alan has enjoyed considerable professional and personal growth from what he considers to be invaluable lessons received from his mentor Martin Bill. Alan’s focus is to continue to bring growth to Contact 1-2-1 as it is a leading contact centre both in Australia and overseas. Alan’s appetite to work on his professional development in sales and marketing, along with building his business and management skills is admirable.

Gary Jerram,

Centre Manager/ Special Projects

linked

Gary is one of our longest serving, and most trusted and respected staff members. We have almost lost track of when he started with us, and he remains a key member of staff and our internal exec team.

Well versed and in charge of steering our accounts, payroll, HR/IR and admin people and functions, Gary extends his time and capability with us by looking after a large portion of our internal IT and Telephony (in conjunction with Emily). If there is something in Excel or Macros that Gary doesn’t know or can’t work out, it’s likely not been invented yet or not worth knowing. And, to make sure that Gary is never bored, he interfaces into some of our most important customers.

Guaranteed to be the only person that we know who books in his leave immediately after and in line with published cricket itineraries (most notably The Ashes tours). It is Adelaide Oval after all that he gets to go to – arguably one of the world’s finest for cricket.

Joan Osaghae,

Blended Team Leader

Joan has been working with Contact 1-2-1 since 2015, and has fast become an important member of Contact 1-2-1 as our Blended Team Leader.

Joan is customer service and client focused and expects the very best from our agents in all that they do. Those who work closely with her know that she approaches all that she does with passion, determination, confidence, attention to detail and a “no nonsense attitude”.

In addition to her work here at Contact 1-2-1, Joan also has a degree in Applied Zoology and has successfully completed her Masters in Clinical Nursing.
