Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) September 21, 2010 —
Global Debt Registry (GDR) is pleased to announce the hiring of Mark Parsells as Executive Chairman. Mr. Parsells brings more than 20 years of Credit Card and Banking Industry expertise to GDR, having held executive senior management and compliance positions with American Express, First USA, Bank One, and Citigroup. Most recently, Mr. Parsells was Chairman and CEO of Regulatory DataCorp, a leading risk mitigation and compliance firm supporting the financial services industry. Mr. Parsells is widely recognized as one of the industry's leading authorities on consumer data privacy and regulatory compliance.
As Executive Chairman, Mr. Parsells’ responsibilities will include overseeing strategic direction, senior executive client relationships, and GDR’s Fall 2010 migration to its next-generation platform based on Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application suite. GDR is the industry’s first PCI-compliant, Oracle-based accounts receivable (AR)-titling, data integrity, and media management platform. “GDR is the only company that ‘titles’ charged-off debt, giving the debt increased value, and creating an immediate, measurable impact on the bottom line,” said Parsells. “Not only does GDR provide a significant ROI benefit to all participants in the sales and collection process, our services make the debt process fully transparent to regulators, judges, and consumers — everyone wins.”
"As one of the foremost compliance experts in the country, Mark's commitment to GDR is a validation of our account-level titling, data integrity, and turnkey media management technology. He recognizes that GDR delivers the most robust and reliable debt-titling solution in the credit card, banking and debt buying industry," said Greg Ousley, Chief Executive Officer. "More importantly, Mark represents the final step in our corporate reorganization following our December 2009 acquisition by a $5 billion private equity firm. We are the most financially stable company in the industry and we have every confidence in Mark's ability to establish GDR as the gold standard in the emerging AR-Debt Titling Industry."
“Within the Accounts Receivable Industry, there is clear and immediate demand for a clean account-level chain of title and validated account-level data from Issuers, debt buyers, sellers, legal collection firms, regulators, judges, and consumers," said Mark Parsells. “It’s just common sense — one should not and could not buy or sell a house or car without a valid, clean title. Bringing titling to the debt collection industry is the long-awaited chain-of-ownership solution.”
