About Our Answering Services
In today's fast paced, "non-human" world, API has found that most callers simply want their VOICE to be heard. They crave reassurance. Reassurance that their message will be delivered accurately and efficiently or that their order will be placed immediately. But mostly, reassurance that their business means something and that customer satisfaction is not a forgotten philosophy. API is the best in providing these services. By focusing our attention on your customer's needs, we provide a higher standard of service to you, our client. When your customers are happy -- you are happy. When you are happy -- we're ecstatic!
Ann Gamertsfelder - President/CEO
In 1986, Ann Gamertsfelder created a legacy for her family that will continue to flourish for years. Ann vowed to go door-to-door to every doctor she could with a business card and a smile while trying to convince them they needed her. Her early experience as a phone operator gave her the foundation and knowledge of how a service works. She then established a successful business teaching piano lessons. She took the experience of both of those and created A Professional Image.
Lori Horton - Vice President
Lori Horton brings many years of experience and education to A Professional Image. After receiving her Bachelor of Science from Arizona State University in Organizational Communication, she set out to help build a successful family business. This required creating a vigorous marketing plan and many hours of hard work and dedication. In addition to her answering service background she also possesses experience in telephone and switch programming. Recently Lori has completed her MBA through Keller Graduate School of Management. This education has expanded her background in financial, marketing, law and business management. Her strong personal and ethical beliefs have helped to establish relationships with API's customers as well as referral sources. Lori's success is the key to API's success!
