As MTI’s business grew, it branched out to other industries, including education, insurance and pharmaceuticals. The article noted that MTI prefers to base its call centers in small Midwestern towns, like Moulton, Iowa, as opposed to larger cities. “There are people who have college education who are tied to the area through agriculture,” Kathy Hett, the CEO of MTI, told the Daily Iowegain. “This gives them the opportunity to utilize their education and gives them a job in their rural community.” MTI was founded in 1990by Hett and her husband, Steven Hett, along with Marvin Thom, and originally offered inbound calling but transitioned to outbound calls when the inbound call market proved too tough, the article noted.
