Amtelco announced that Tom Curtin, CEO, was recognized as the 2022 Association of Teleservices International (ATSI) Hall of Fame award recipient.

The ATSI Hall of Fame award is given to deserving individuals in appreciation and recognition for their contributions to the industry. ATSI presents the awards at the association’s annual conference to members who show their core values, commitment to peer group success, and the industry.

Tom Curtin, CEO of Amtelco, has worked in the industry since the early 1980s. He has held positions in sales and operations. With the sad passing of his father over twenty years ago, he assumed the helm at Amtelco.

“We all benefit from the institutional knowledge held by these folks,” said Tifani Leal, ATSI president. “We are so proud for ATSI to recognize a Curtin for the second time and welcome Tom to the ATSI Hall of Fame.”

“I am so humbled by this honor. I vividly recall Mr. C (aka Mr. Curtin) receiving this award in San Diego, California, and how very proud I was to see him receive it,” said Tom Curtin, Amtelco CEO.

“I am truly blessed that he set the stage for Amtelco’s culture ahead of me. This award is humbly accepted on behalf of and due to all Amtelco family members, including employees and our family of customers.”
