And the company announced last week that its first office across the pond recently opened at 4055 Faber Place Drive in North Charleston. “When we spoke to everybody in the U. S. about Charleston, everybody had a very positive viewpoint of that region,” managing director Glenn Jackson said last week. Jackson said more employees will be added on an as-needed basis as customer demand increases. The $760,000 investment is expected to create about 40 new jobs by the end of 2016. Moneypenny’s long-term plan is to have about 400 employees within five years, according to the Charleston Regional Development Alliance. With the same name of the British Secret Service receptionist in the James Bond films, the specialty staffing firm said it handles incoming phone calls for businesses “of all shapes and sizes. ” It offers dedicated personal receptionists for entrepreneurs and small businesses on either an as-needed or full-time basis. “When Moneypenny opened in the U. K. , the face of telephone answering was similar to how it has traditionally been in the U. S. — dominated by more impersonal messenger services,” company co-founder Ed Reeves said in a written statement. “We wanted to offer businesses the same high-standard of service they would receive if they had their own receptionist, based in their office.
