New York City-based New Avon LLC recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the company’s new customer care center in Blue Ash, Ohio. More than 200 employees at the new Avon Care Center will provide critical support and quick resolutions for Representatives to operate their successful businesses.
“The opening of the Avon Care Center is the latest step on our journey to become the leading social selling company in North America,” said Scott White, CEO of New Avon. “Avon has been taking care of women and their families since our founding 130 years ago. We are proud of the opportunities we give women to build businesses on their own time. We are committed to the success of our Avon Representatives—and providing outstanding service to our Representatives and their customers is central to this mission.”
The custom-designed, 47,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility also will host Avon U, a world-class training center for Avon Representatives.
“Our Representatives are the heart of our company, and we are making investments in their development,” added Betty Palm, president of social selling at New Avon. “We are excited to introduce Avon U as a destination for Representatives to work with their peers to share best practices to take their businesses to the next level.”
The office location in Blue Ash is Avon’s second operational site in Ohio. The company’s North American distribution center is in Zanesville, Ohio.
“Avon chose Blue Ash for its cutting-edge, entrepreneurial community,” said Avon Care Center Director John McCahan. “We are proud to be among the 2,300 corporations, including a variety of Fortune 500 companies, who are located here.”
