CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, June 2014 – Thomas L. Cardella & Associates (TLCA) is hosting a grand opening of its new corporate location, 4515 20th Avenue, SW, in Cedar Rapids. Governor Branstad will be in attendance to commemorate the company’s growth.  

WHEN: Tuesday, June 10th

             TIME: 1:30- 2:30 pm

After a tour of the facility, the Governor will be speaking about local job creation and its impact on Iowa’s economic future. Thomas Cardella, Founder and President of TLCA, will also provide comment on his commitment to growing jobs in Eastern Iowa.

TLCA began transitioning its business into the building at 4515 20th Avenue in October of 2013. “We simply outgrew our former location. Our continued growth is proof of the trust our clients place in us,” stated Thomas Cardella, Founder and President, “and of the success our talented representative teams have in meeting and exceeding client goals.”

Today, Thomas L Cardella & Associates employs approximately 320 professionals in the new location and is projected to employ 500 in Cedar Rapids by the end of the year, and 1,000 in Iowa overall. “We have several initiatives for growth in the very near future that are well suited to the available workforce in the Cedar Rapids area,” said Cardella. “We continue to drive business to this facility largely because of the customer–focused employees we find.”

The building is familiar to many of the TLCA long-term employees, having formerly housed Access Direct, another call center business founded by Thomas Cardella. The building has housed call center operations since Access Direct occupied it first in 2000. TLCA was recently ranked as the 18th largest integrated contact center provider in the world.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
