Our founder and CEO, Jason Levesque, maintains close relationships with officials on the local, state, and federal level and regularly visits Capitol Hill where he advocates for the interests of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and the call center industry.
Jason’s activism over the last few years has focused on the health of the Direct Response industry along with the call center industry as a whole. From regularly attending and sponsoring the annual ESRP (the Electronic Retailing Self Regulation) conferences, to actively communicating with the FTC in order to help clarify industry best practices, Jason has repeatedly demonstrated that it is better to lead than to be led. In 2015, Jason was nominated for the inaugural Mercury Wing Award, which is presented to a member of the Electronic Retailing Association that demonstrates passion for the industry and is shown to be a thoughtful leader.
Jason maintains close relationships with officials on the local, state, and federal level and regularly visits Capitol Hill where he advocates for the interests of our industry. He attends the annual Government Affairs Fly-In to meet with other industry executives, key lawmakers, and government officials, including U.S. Senator Susan Collins (pictured right), to advocate for the industry.
As a veteran, Jason is also committed to veteran affairs and supporting groups that help transition veterans back to civilian life. His passion for hiring veterans and members of the Reserves and National Guard earned him the 2013 Maine ESGR (Employer Support for the Guard and Reserves) Above and Beyond Award in appreciation of Argo’s efforts. Along with Jason, Argo believes deeply in the importance of connecting our business and employees to the community to help others help themselves.
