When Wilson’s former employer, Dun & Bradstreet, decided to outsource its call center operations, Wilson jumped at the chance to start Ryla, which provides call center services to corporate giants like IBM, AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Boasting more than 3,200 employees, Ryla has a campus-like call center headquartered in Georgia, as well as a recently-opened center in Saraland, Alabama.
