EGS is headquartered in Plano, Texas and has approximately 40,000 employees worldwide.

The 30,000-square-foot office currently supports 245 employees and will expand by 175 employees over the next year.
“Virginia Beach competed nationally with other EGS locations for this expansion,” said Warren D. Harris, director of Virginia Beach Economic Development. “We’re very fortunate to have a company of this caliber show its confidence to expand here. We know they will find a plentiful and skilled workforce.”
Melody Cespedes, Site Director of EGS’ Virginia Beach location, stated, “We are thrilled to be expanding here in Virginia Beach and to be partnering with the Virginia Beach Economic Development team. The investments made by both organizations show our combined commitment to the area and to bringing good jobs to members of our community.”
EGS generates $1.1 billion annually through NCO and APAC that provide services for a majority of the Fortune 500 companies in the United States, as well as other leading global companies. EGS has contact centers located throughout the United States and across the globe.
The expansion will also result in $600,000 of new capital investment in the City.
