The Contact Group is a teleservices consulting and management group founded and operated by David Costenbader. David played a pivotal role in the development and growth of privately held company, Price Interactive, which became one of the largest automated platforms and teleservice businesses in the industry. Price Interactive was sold to a public company, iBasis, in 2001 for over $119M which led to the inception of The Contact Group.
Over the last ten years, TCG has grown into one of the premier teleservices firms in both campaigns & elections, as well as non-profit sectors, by relentlessly assisting them to attain their annual communication goals. Accolades span to winning a Guinness World Record in 2012. We place high value on executing programs while quickly adapting to changing needs and challenges, which is why we have a history of mutually beneficial, trusting, long-term relationships with our clients. Our experience and track record speak volumes.
We fight the good fight with our clients, are passionate about what we do, and are proud of the results delivered.
David Costenbader founded The Contact Group in 2001, providing innovative phone-based services and online multi-media communications solutions to help clients win elections, shape legislation, inform constituents, and measurably improve outreach effectiveness.
Formerly at Price Interactive, David spearheaded business development, leading the company into the campaigns and election space, as well as expanding to Fortune 500 clients.
David’s company ethos at TCG: focus on client needs and meet those needs with a results-driven core team, allowing continued success and long-lasting relationships.
TCG does an amazing job working with us to create a script explaining to our members why a call to their member of Congress is important now. Rather than automated recordings, their focus on proper training of their live agents allows us to trust their staff to get on the phone with their members who are business leaders. The personalized attention they dedicate to us saves us time and work, not to mention the flexibility and ability to deliver well under tight time constraints. We received better service for our investment with TCG. The legislation Business Forward backed passed in 2017
We have worked with TCG for over 10 years and chose TCG in March, 2018 to call our targeted audience with their professional live agents and survey that audience on the issues most important to them. We utilized that key data to construct our communications strategy going forward and won our campaign for local alderman/representative. They implemented the program quickly, provided daily reports and finished on projected budget.
Using The Contact Group we were able to successfully connect the Secretary with thousands of USDA employees from across the county in an interactive forum, where they were able to comment and ask questions.
