Our Story

Prialto was founded in 2010 in Silicon Valley by global financial industry executive Eric Taussig. In his travels throughout Asia and Latin America, he encountered countless bright, creative, motivated college grads stuck in call center and service jobs that offered little satisfaction or advancement opportunities.

Meanwhile, in his work with United States tech companies, Eric met executives crumbling under the load of administrative work forced on them by technology that replaced administrative assistants.

Prialto was born and has evolved into the fully managed virtual assistant service that it is today, bridging the wealth of opportunity in the United States with the wealth of talent in remote regions of the world where opportunity is scarcer.

Prialto offers managed administrative services focused on human-centered connection and empowerment, amplifying the lives and work of its members and its employees. Prialto hires, trains, and manages assistants as full-time employees with full benefits, empowers them to use tools and systems executives use, and delivers performance management and professional development.

Prialto, Inc. is based in Portland, Oregon, with service centers in Latin America and Asia.

Core Values

While our specific offerings are continually evolving, everything Prialto does is guided by our core values, the Prialto COILS that bind us together:

Commitment

We always jump in with two feet, putting our entire selves into everything we do

Ownership

There is no problem that does not belong to us. We turn every problem we encounter as an opportunity to demonstrate our abilities to resolve issues

Integrity

The state of being whole: We always work to leave a positive wake such that situations, people, and things are better off after our encounter than they were before

Service

We live by the understanding that relentless giving provides the best guarantee for success
