Unifund CCR LLC, a leading manager and purchaser of distressed consumer receivables, has been intrinsically driven to authentically and intentionally invest itself with passion and vigor in any of its various pursuits since its inception 35 years ago. As one in our industry may imagine, we have never been short of new pursuits, as technology and regulations have continually evolved and challenged us to push ourselves to new heights. Whether it was developing a new business strategy, embracing new technology systems, studying upcoming legislation and emerging trends, growing a strong company culture, or giving back to the community— we built our organization on the old motto that “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” 

We’re thankful and incredibly appreciative that we’ve been able to attract and retain like-minded conscientious contributors to help drive us forward with drive and genuine enthusiasm for their professional growth and the advocacy and continual improvement of our industry. We want to take the opportunity to recognize and thank a few of our team members for their dedication as demonstrated by their active involvement and commitment across multiple industry trade associations. 

These particular employees are invested in a combined 5 industry associations as actively involved members holding a total of 8 council or committee positions and 4 industry certifications. We are proud of their representation and leadership on behalf of our company and our industry at large, and appreciative of their embodiment of all of our core values but most particularly of our core values “Embrace and Lead,” “Seek Improvement,” “Consumer Commitment,” and “Build Relationships.”

“These associations and others provide valuable thought leadership, advocacy, development of standards and best practices, industry self-regulation, mentorship, networking, and innovation for the accounts receivable management industry. If there ever was a time to unite in industry association involvement, that time is upon us. We’re grateful to each of these internal Unifund employees as well as outside involved peers, partners, clients, and colleagues for their ongoing efforts to create positive representation and growth in our industry,” says Kacey Rask, VP Portfolio Servicing. 

While businesses will always compete, we can still maintain a common commitment to our consumers and our ongoing growth and development as we represent a highly scrutinized but vitally necessary service in the larger financial services industry.
