About Ascension

Ascension Ohio is headquartered in Cincinnati, OH and represents a portfolio of energy sector clients, all of whom are household names. We opened our doors in the fall of 2016, originally representing just a sliver of market share for a single client in Columbus. We have since expanded into the Cincinnati market by delivering results that surpassed the initial demands of our gas and energy clients. Our motto is ‘rising above the rest’ because we believe in setting a high bar of excellence, creating a win-win-win for our clients, customers and team members. Our personal approach creates long-lasting relationships which deliver results for our clients.

In a highly competitive business climate for small and large businesses alike, outsourcing has become increasingly prevalent because it frees up companies to focus on their core competencies. When it comes to acquiring new quality customers, many businesses have realized that they are able to conserve their limited resources by outsourcing their sales to firms like ours.

Ascension Ohio expertly increases sales revenue for our clients by bridging the gap between these corporate giants and their customer bases. Where advertising fails is precisely where we succeed. We focus on building in-person relationships in our clients’ target markets. There is nothing like a face-to-face conversation to inspire a consumer to take action, which is why we consistently acquire customers that our clients have been trying to reach for years.

We proudly employ a diverse staff comprised of the most success-driven professionals in the Midwest. There is no team better suited to being the faces of global brands.

With a successful first year under our belt, we’ve got our eye on what’s next. Ascension Ohio has plans to diversify our client portfolio and to expand to three additional locations in 2018.

Ashley Mahoney, Human Resources Manager

Ashley is a former D1 soccer player at Kent State University, where she earned a degree in Exercise Science. While in school, she started a franchise with College Pro Painters. This is where she began to learn the ropes of the business world and realized that she had a passion for it. With experience in management and sports, Ashley wanted something different from the typical 9 to 5, which is why she found a natural home at Ascension Ohio. She loves that there is a management training program where she has continued to develop a variety of business skills. What excites her the most is knowing that her success relies on her own effort, and with a competitive spirit like Ashley’s, there’s no doubt that she will deliver results every time.

Nick Klein, Team Leader

Nick credits these positions for teaching him how to be a great leader and for fueling his entrepreneurial passion. Nick has been married for three years to his wife, Nicole, who is a 5th grade teacher in Indiana. The couple has two-year-old son, Lucas, who is obsessed with Buzz Lightyear.
