The field hearing will take place at The Seattle Public Library, 1000 4th Avenue in Seattle, WA. The event is designed to create a forum for discussion on the debt collection industry, one of the many areas where the CFPB works to educate, consumers, enforce financial regulations and study related data ad trends. CFPB Director, Rich Cordray, will offer remarks, accompanied by testimonies from consumer groups, industry representatives and the public.
Benson’s participation was requested as an industry representative, offering insight from the perspective of an agency in the accounts receivable management industry. Benson’s years of industry experience is well-suited to provide value for consumer advocates.
CBE’s COO Chad Benson said, “I am honored to represent CBE at the field hearing. The CFPB, consumer advocacy groups and the collection industry can create a win-win outcome by modernizing outdated laws which govern the collection of consumer debt. We need to put consumer protection at the forefront of our discussions and find reasonable processes that truly protect the best interest of consumers.”
