Moneypenny, an outsourced communication services provider, has further extended its services in the United States with the acquisition of Sunshine Communication Services. 

Sunshine, based in Florida and founded in 1975 by the Gross family, is a provider of bilingual (English and Spanish) call management solutions to businesses of all sizes. 

The Moneypenny Group is a market leader, with its US HQ in Atlanta. The company employs over 1,000 people globally and delivers virtual receptionist and phone answering services, Live Chat, switchboard, fully outsourced customer service teams and a host of AI and technology-enabled services handling over 20 million calls and chats annually for thousands of businesses, from sole traders to multinational corporations.

The company has ambitious growth plans, and this acquisition will take the US business to almost a third of the Moneypenny Group turnover.

“We are delighted to welcome Sunshine Communication Services to The Moneypenny Group,” said Joanna Swash, group CEO. “This is our fourth acquisition in the US following Alphapage in 2022. 

“Sunshine Communication Services is a successful brand and its acquisition will further complement the services we can offer to our clients in the US. 

“Our aim is to be the number one provider in the US for outsourced communications, supporting businesses of all sizes to deliver a great customer experience with every interaction, regardless of channel.”

“From the moment we met Moneypenny, it was clear our companies have a great fit, not just with our products and services, but also more importantly, with our strong culture and ethos. 

“Looking after our people and putting the needs of the customer front and centre are at the core of both of our companies.”
