VSS will be a limited liability partnership registered in the state of Delaware for tax purposes. Its founder is Mr. Martin Gibbs, a former telemarketing head with Medfone, Inc. Mr. Gibbs has brought together a highly respected group of telemarketing and customer relations specialists who have a total of 35 years of combined experience with this industry.

The company has a limited number of private investors and does not plan to go public. The company has its main offices in Gig Harbor, Washington. The facilities include office spaces, conference rooms, and a phone center. The company expects to begin offering its services in June of Year 1.

The company's main clients will be companies that require high amounts of communication between themselves and their clients.
