ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The iA Institute and insideARM are proud to announce that Missy Meggison has joined the team in the role of General Counsel and Editor. With more than fourteen years in the industry, Missy is a seasoned receivables management professional.
Immediately prior to joining insideARM, Missy served as General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for the FFAM360 Alliance of Companies, a national group of affiliated companies which handles all aspects of the revenue cycle through various streams, including a collection agency, debt buyer, and separate master servicers for both performing and non-performing receivables. As FFAM360’s sole attorney, Missy was responsible for the legal functions of all companies, including compliance, litigation, general corporate matters, and contracts. Serving in this capacity, she provided risk assessments to the board of directors and worked directly with operational leadership to develop compliant solutions to alleviate risk and meet other business objectives. During her time at FFAM360, Missy developed and implemented a robust compliance management system that included an audit/remediation program, a new regulation rollout process, a full suite of policies/procedures, and methodologies to perform complaint/litigation root cause analysis and tracking.
Missy started her career in the courtroom; in January 2007 she was a collections litigation attorney filing lawsuits and appearing in court to collect healthcare, credit card, and auto deficiency balances. Ultimately, she was tasked with managing her firm’s Georgia office, training collectors, and working with operations to develop policies and procedures. In 2011 her practice expanded to include pursuing second mortgage deficiency balances and managing both collections operations and collections litigation in nine states across the southeast. In 2015 she took an in-house position with a national mortgage servicer, where she was able to merge her knowledge of the collections industry with the regulatory intricacies of foreclosures, collecting deficiency balances on home loans, and servicing performing collateralized loans.
Originally from Florida, Missy attended the University of Central Florida and the University of Miami School of Law. She currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, and is licensed to practice law in both Florida and Georgia. Outside of work, Missy is passionate about two things: the Atlanta Braves and rescuing animals. In support of the latter, she currently serves on the board of directors of PAWS Atlanta, the oldest no-kill animal shelter in the Atlanta area, where she has the opportunity to impact both human and non-human lives in the Atlanta area.
In addition to editing insideARM’s daily news and managing the Case Law Tracker, Missy will be playing a key leadership role for the Consumer Relations Consortium, an exclusive policy, legal, and compliance membership group founded by the iA Institute in 2013.
Stephanie Eidelman, CEO of The iA Institute said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled about Missy joining our team. She has a well-rounded industry background and is a smart, poised, and thoughtful professional who will be able to contribute from day one.”
