The Team at Awards Dinner

Astyra Corporation and Magellan of Virginia were awarded the Metropolitan Business League’s Trailblazing Partnership Award for their work together. The Trailblazing Partnership Award recognizes a small business and its larger partner that formed a successful teaming relationship and/or joint venture that resulted in the award of a new contract or an ongoing relationship. Astyra is responsible for staffing the customer service positions for Magellan’s member call center.

“In both the substance and logistics of our work, we recognize that real, lasting success comes from collaboration, especially with a locally-based organization that shares our mission-driven focus. We found that collaboration in the team at Astyra” said Bill Phipps, general manager of Magellan of Virginia.
The continued success of the Astyra/Magellan partnership has resulted in the pursuit of several other opportunities within and outside of the Commonwealth.
