Tracesmart’s sales director, Chris Rothwell, has joined a host of industry leading professionals on the judging panel at this year’s Debt Collection Awards.
Held at The Nottingham Belfry Hotel, on 18th November, the award scheme is the only event to specifically celebrate the achievements of those working in the debt collection industry. In its fourth year, the ceremony marks the efforts and talents of teams and individuals within this highly challenging sector.
With a wealth of financial services experience behind him, Rothwell brought his inside knowledge to Tracesmart ten years ago and helps develop its range of services aimed at the collections industry and public services sector. Originally heading up Tracesmart’s in-house tracing team, his sharp business acumen and commitment was recognised by the company’s directors and he was appointed to the board; charged with leading the sales team and strengthening Tracesmart’s position in the marketplace.
Speaking of his place on this year’s panel of judges, Rothwell commented: "It is an honour to judge the merits of teams and businesses within the debt collection industry. Having joined Tracesmart to head up the tracing division, the collections industry is one that I am extremely au fait with; I understand the expertise that is required to enjoy success within this tough business sector."
Tracesmart provide online solutions to the collections industry, helping businesses with address data cleansing, and tracing people. Its new intelligent tracing tool, TraceIQ, is also sponsoring the Trace Team of the Year award. Giving businesses the means to locate the information they are looking for in a swift manner, the product fits well with an award which promotes excellence in tracing.
Elaborating on his company’s involvement with the award ceremony, Rothwell added:"I am extremely proud of Tracesmart’s involvement with this year’s awards; it’s a great honour. I feel that being asked to participate in the essential judging process, alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, highlights how far Tracesmart has come."
