Perry is the driving force behind 147 Media (or so he says…) and is both the Publisher and Editor of 147 Media’s flagship product, www.contact-centres.com.
For those of you who have been in the contact centre industry as long as Perry may recall him being Commercial Director of a certain now defunked call centre magazine which he left in 2001 to launch contact-centres.com – the rest, so they say, is history!
