TaskUs’ new SVP of sales reflects on his most important lesson

In January, TaskUs, the leader in business outsourcing solutions, opened a sales office in Dallas. Recently, Jarrod Johnson was hired as the new Senior Vice President of Sales after working with industry leaders like IBM and Xerox. In an interview with Crain’s Dallas, Johnson spoke about one mistake he’s made during his career and the lesson he learned from it.

“Sometimes you have to take your licks and move on. Now I oversee a team of salespeople at TaskUs so I pass these lessons on to them, too. I started here in November and opened the office in January in Uptown Dallas. We’ve got a team of 10 here reaching out to small and mid-size companies that are disrupting traditional businesses.”

TaskUs is moving to the Santa Monica Airport

TaskUs, a leader in digital business process outsourcing, is moving into new offices in the Santa Monica Airport in October of this year. The 6,193-square-foot space, dubbed “TaskForce One” and which previously housed the restaurant Typhoon, has been redesigned by global design firm Unispace to reflect both the setting of the airport and TaskUs’ global presence.

“We love this location and we’re excited to be part of its revitalization,” said CEO Bryce Maddock in a statement. “The space itself is rich in local history and our team frequented Typhoon, so there’s a sentimental value to us personally. It reminds us of how far we’ve come, from TaskUs’ humble two-person beginning to the more than 7,000 team members we now have worldwide.”
