Capio Partners is pleased to announce that company co-founder and board chairman Jim Richards has been named president-elect of ACA International for the 2014 – 2015 association year.  Founded in 1939, ACA International brings together more than 230,000 professionals representing third-party collection agencies, asset buyers, attorneys, creditors and vendor affiliates.

Mr. Richards began his career in the collections industry with GC Services in 1973, and over the years rose through the ranks finally becoming vice president of operations at GC.  In 1990 Mr. Richards became president of Medaphis Services Corporation where he heralded in a new era of growth before leading the sale of Medaphis to NCO Group in 1998.  In 1999 Mr. Richards co-founded Attention, LLC that grew to become the largest secondary collection agency in the U.S. and eventually became West Asset Management.  After leaving West, Mr. Richards co-founded Capio Partners in 2008 and in six short years cultivated the company into the largest, healthcare-exclusive, debt purchaser in the country.

“I expect to unify the industry by first bringing together the many agencies who are not currently part of this fantastic association and develop a large agency group within ACA to band together in our fight for fair legislative, regulatory and judicial issues facing our industry” says, Jim Richards, president-elect of ACA International.

“As our industry continues to evolve, Jim Richards will bring president-elect passion, experience and leadership to reinforce our standing as the leading association in the credit and collection industry”, said ACA International CEO Pat Morris.
