Direct Line Tele Response is proud to announce that during the PINetwork’s Annual Conference last week in Manchester, NH our own IT Director, John Freire was presented with the prestigious Allen Kalik Award. This award recognizes individuals whose unselfish dedication and leadership have led to the advancement of the PINetwork Group. A very special thank you goes out to our colleague Phyllis Shaw of BPE (Business and Professional Exchange) for presenting this esteemed award to John.
“John has been our in-house IT Director for over nine years now and is responsible for all aspects of our technology infrastructure. He is so deserving of this award. Not only does he add tremendous value to us here at Direct Line but really to the entire answering service/call center industry”, said Ken Goldenberg, President/Owner of Direct Line as well as a past Allen Kalik award winner himself. “I know Allen would be as proud of John as we are.”
Allen Kalik was a pioneer in the telephone answering service industry. As the Founder and President of Professional Teledata, Allen’s visionary sense set the pace for the entire industry. After his passing in 2011, this award was named in his honor so as to carry on his legacy and celebrate others that demonstrate his commitment for excellence in the technological advancements of the tele-messaging industry.
