Wisner Native Gives Back to Hometown by Creating Jobs
Amy Infante of Plan B Consultants expands business with new location in rural Nebraska
(Bentonville, Ark.) – In a time of high unemployment and sluggish job growth, Plan B Consultants Founder and Managing Principal Amy Infante-Still is creating jobs and has chosen her hometown of Wisner, Neb., in which to expand.
“We are excited to fulfill our dream to return to our Nebraska roots and give back to Wisner through job creation and involvement in the community,” Infante said.
The downtown Wisner location will house an outbound, business-to-business lead generation center for Plan B Consultants. Seven employees have started work at the operations center and Infante-Still plans to hire additional staff as the business continues to expand.
Infante-Still and her husband Giovanni, also a native of rural Nebraska, founded Plan B Consultants in 2006. The sales and marketing consulting firm, which is focused on the hospitality industry, works with hotels and resorts across the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean to uncover new business opportunities, train staff and streamline their sales and marketing processes and systems.
Infante-Still said she had been subcontracting with a call center for two years before deciding to bring that function under her own company. “We have been flooded with resumes from very talented applicants. We’re pleased at the response from the community and surrounding area,” she said.
“We are thrilled to have job growth that adds a diverse industry segment to this rural market, and it’s exciting to see Wisner reversing the loss of Nebraska’s intelligent young professional population” said Garry Clark, executive director of Cuming County Economic Development.
