SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Members of Receivables Management Association International (RMAI) elected Officers and Directors to its Board for 2021. Due to the pandemic which created so much uncertainty and program cancellation, all 2020 officers will be serving in their same positions for 2021. Of the ten-member Board, nine are continuing service from the previous year. The 2021 Officers and Directors are:
- James Mastriani, Velocity Portfolio Group, President
- Adam Parks, Plaza Services LLC, President-Elect
- Anne Thomas, Cavalry Portfolio Services, LLC, Treasurer
- Jon Mazzoli, Resurgent Capital Services, Secretary
- Marian Sangalang, The Bureaus, Inc., Past President
- Mike Colby, Second Round, LP, Director
- Laura Jensen, Absolute Resolutions, Corp./RAzOR Capital LLC, Director
- Kelly Knepper-Stephens, TrueAccord, Director representing collection agencies and law firms
- Brett Soldevila, Security Credit Services, LLC, Director
- Brian Williams, Crown Asset Management, LLC
Brian Williams of Crown Asset Management, LLC (CAM) is joining the RMAI Board of Directors for 2021. Brian is the founder and CEO of CAM, an Atlanta based specialty finance company founded in 2004, focused on the acquisition, management, and recovery of distressed retail assets. As an advocate for CAM and the accounts receivables management (ARM) industry, in 2020 he served as the Georgia Co-Chairman for the RMAI State Legislative Committee and worked directly with both 2020 Georgia Republican Senate campaigns.
In his candidate statement, Brian explained his motivation for running for election to the RMAI Board, “… I believe strongly that the ARM industry, and specifically the continued existence of a robust marketplace where originating creditors have an outlet to recover a portion of their losses through debt sales, remains a critical facet of our credit ecosystem. Without this functioning debt sale marketplace, consumers and small businesses would find themselves with fewer options of available credit at reasonable interest rates. I believe my experience building and running CAM through multiple economic cycles provides a unique perspective and ability to assist RMAI, and its membership, through the post-pandemic cycle…”
RMAI’s plans for 2021 include continuing its well-known role of being present and involved in advocating for the accounts receivables management industry and engaging members in strategic grassroots efforts.
“2021 promises to be another busy year advocating in a number of states and Washington D.C.,” said Jan Stieger, Executive Director of RMAI. “Our members count on RMAI to represent the industry at both the state and federal levels and keep them informed of important regulatory and legislative activity. In addition to our advocacy work, we look forward to bringing back our Executive Summit and other face-to-face education and networking events we have planned.”
