We are pleased to announce that Propio Language Services has received a NOVA award from the Overland Park Economic Development Council for the record-breaking growth we achieved last year. With the difficulty of the past two years, all of us at Propio are extremely grateful to have made it to 2022 with this measure of success, and are encouraged by this local acknowledgement. 

Leader in Language Services

On Thursday, March 3, CFO Chris Pesce and CRO Joe Samoszenko attended the Overland Park Chamber Economic Development Council’s (OPEDC) annual Honors Lunch, along with seven other local businesses and former Mayor Carl Gerlach to receive the NOVA award. It was an honor to be in attendance with such important members of our Overland Park community. Marco Assis, Propio’s CEO, said, “We are committed to being a leader in the entire Kansas City metro area, especially in Overland Park, where our corporate headquarters is located. We are proud to bring best in class interpreting and translation services with unparalleled technology innovation to our clients across the country. ”

Values Driven Language Provider

While Propio is certainly a globally-reaching company, it is also one that is deeply rooted in community. We strive to add value to every aspect of our industry, including the mark we leave on the communities we call home. 

Mission to Provide Quality Interpretation Nationwide

In an effort to support and expand our mission of community engagement, Propio officially formed a new initiative in 2021, dedicated to increasing our corporate and employee involvement in our local communities. Propio called this initiative Community Connections, and it focuses exclusively on our community impact, team building between Propio departments, and maintaining the consistency in our efforts.  

Propio Sponsorship & Community

The program carefully chooses a minimum of three organizations to support each year. In 2021, those organizations included the Kansas School for the Deaf, Harvesters, and Don Bosco Centers (specifically, their refugee English learning program). In 2022, Community Connections efforts will be focused on Doctors Without Borders USA, Ronald McDonald House, Nourish KC, and Scraps KC.

This makes receiving the NOVA award an exciting validation for our efforts to increase our positive impact in our community, and we look forward to doing even more for the Overland Park area in the future.
