Taylor Reach treated all staff as equals even though, clearly they had much deeper and broader domain knowledge than we possessed. They taught our staff and shared suggestions and best practices freely. This not only helped the project to succeed but also helped the staff to gain knowledge and be more effective in their roles. Taylor Reach demonstrated good political acuity in dealing with staff whose future was undetermined and provided us with solid feedback and counsel on these individuals when asked. I would certainly not hesitate to hire Taylor Reach again.

Colin has done a great job of moving a project through to action for us. This was something we were struggling to achieve on our own and with Colin’s expertise and experience, we have been able to achieve results in only a few weeks. I very much appreciated his disciplined approach to the process – he kept us on track. His methodology was consistent, logical and supported by data throughout. I would recommend Colin and Taylor Reach without reservation.
Andrew O’Brien, President & COO, Blue Ocean Contact Centers
Colin is a passionate and experienced Contact Center executive; he is an asset in any business relationship. I reported to Colin while he was President of Watts Communications. During this time he drove an unprecedented period of growth for the company but always ensured we didn’t lose focus on all our clients and exceeded their expectations. Colin was a mentor and was my first guide in the world of outsourcing and customer service.

We were very satisfied with The Taylor Reach Group’s work as they helped shape a much more productive and profitable Customer Service Dept. At Aldo.
Vice President, Aldo
Colin is a rock-solid business professional with a deep knowledge of the Contact Center industry. With honesty, integrity, and excellent interpersonal skills, Colin will tell you what you need to hear, rather than what you want to hear. His exceptional communication abilities allow him to deliver a message without the nonsense, and he is a trusted listener and advisor to colleagues and subordinates alike. He really understands what “partnership” is all about. He is a hands-on leader, who completely understands the requirements, committing and delivering on-time/on-budget projects by rolling up his sleeves and getting the job done. He will do whatever it takes to complete the project and do so with style.
Vice President, ING Bank
Colin understands the complex service requirements needed to support large multi-channel companies and he is able to articulate those needs to a range of audiences. Once the needs are defined, Colin has the ability to create a roadmap and structure for a given project, communicate the plan effectively, and deliver the desired results within the defined timelines. Colin is a creative thinker and has deep industry knowledge that would make him an asset to any company that engages in his services.

The first project; we utilized Colin and his organization to assess our operational processes, procedures, our current infrastructure and provided a detailed scope of potential low hanging fruits and long term goals and initiatives.
During our second project; we utilized Colin and his organization to assess demographics and potential facilities to expand our current operations. They demonstrated that they had numerous contacts within the industry, performed site visits and provided pertinent market data to make an informed decision and business plan.
