PPLSolutions moved its call center to a building in Humboldt Industrial Park earlier this year and recently signed a lease to double its space in the new facility, adding even more employees.
The call center handles business for many deregulated energy suppliers. Christina Shackleton, business development manager for PPLSolutions, said 114 agents currently work at the center, a large increase from the 60 who were employed at the facility from which PPL Solutions moved this year. With the expansion anticipated to be complete in September, up to 100 additional people will be hired, Shackleton said.
During last month’s annual meeting, the organization’s board of directors elected officers and at-large board members.

Lettiere, vice president of sales and marketing; Nancy R. Stasko, assistant secretary; and Patricia Gendler, CPA, assistant secretary.
In 10 years, CAN DO has touched the lives of hundreds of servicemen and women from the Hazleton area who are serving in the military overseas. On Memorial Day, the economic development organization and its student committee were honored for their support of the military.
Each fall since 2005, CAN DO’s Student Action Committee holds Operation: CAN DO, a drive to collect food, personal hygiene and entertainment products for local military personnel. Items are collected at local schools and businesses, as well as at CAN DO’s office. CAN DO partners with the Freeland American Legion to execute this annual event, with the Legion receiving the items and shipping care packages to military members in time for the holidays.
Located directly along the I-81 corridor in Northeast Pennsylvania and just minutes from I-80, Greater Hazleton offers an ideal location, just two hours to New York City and Philadelphia and within a day's drive of half the nation's population.
