The call centre will be managed by Bethan Francis, Lianne Sims and Liz Morrison, all of whom have previously worked at Pell & Bales.
Senior Associate at Stratcom UK, Bethan Francis, formerly Client Service Director at Pell & Bales, leads Stratcom strategic and client service offering in the UK. She said:
"We are opening our first UK call centre in a new era of fundraising. There is a concerted effort and movement towards relationship fundraising and the phone has to be one of the most under-utilised tools in this area. Underutilised in its use as a standalone channel to drive engagement and deepen relationships, but also in its integration with digital campaigns.
"We want to change that, and we invite those charities and non-profits who are looking to embrace relationship fundraising, who want to evolve and innovate, and most importantly those that believe in the value of high-quality supporter experiences to try our unique offering and approach."
Bob Penner, Stratcom CEO, added:
"Our work to date in the UK has led us to believe there is a place for what we have to offer. We think our expertise in engagement, opinion research and fundraising combined, along with experience in phone plus digital puts us in a unique position to design and execute integrated programmes."
