San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2014
Freedom Financial Network (FFN), the largest negotiator of consumer debt in the nation, reports results for the first quarter of the year that include resolution of $202.8 million of debt for clients.
The results represent a nearly 9 percent increase over the first quarter of the year, and bring the total debt resolved by the company since 2002 to more than $2.9 billion. During this second quarter of 2014, FFN negotiated resolutions on 36,113 individual creditor accounts in the quarter, up 7 percent over the previous quarter. In the process, the company helped 24,332 clients, up 3.7 percent over the last quarter. The debt resolution results equate to negotiating $2.23 million of debt each day throughout the quarter, or close to $93,000 each hour.
While several quarters of growth have stabilized economic conditions, consumers continue to add debt faster than income is increasing, says Andrew Housser, co-founder and CEO of FFN, citing figures from the Federal Reserve and National Retail Federation. “Clearly, the need to help consumers get out of debt remains, and Freedom Financial Network continues to serve as the leading resource for them.”
At the same time, FFN continues to grow. With 650 employees, the company has nearly 100 open sales, negotiation, customer service, loan officer, underwriting, analytics and software engineering positions in its Tempe (Ariz.) and San Mateo (Calif.) offices. “Freedom Financial Network’s growth gives it the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of its clients, its employees and the community.”
FFN is a consumer credit advocate that negotiates directly with creditors on consumers’ behalf to resolve debt balances. Offering an alternative to credit counseling, debt consolidation and bankruptcy, the company’s debt relief program helps clients resolve their unsecured debt, often in 24 to 48 months.
