MADISON, Wis. (PRWEB) December 10, 2008
"For the first time, the collection industry has asked debt settlement to be represented and participate in the annual DBA conference," said Chris Kesterson, TASC president and chief executive of Debt Settlement America in Dallas. "The fact that the foremost collection industry trade group requested a TASC executive board member to present at the conference is a testament to our commitment to education. We are constantly striving to build closer working relationships between TASC member companies and debt-collection agencies."
Schumann's presentation at the DBA conference will include a history of the debt settlement industry and summary of its rapid growth. She hopes to provide attendees with information on how to identify reputable debt-settlement companies and how to work with them efficiently. The conference will be held February 3-5, 2009, at the Mirage hotel and casino in Las Vegas, where more than 1,600 attendees are expected.
Schumann, executive vice president for TASC member company Maximum Recovery, has been in the debt-settlement industry for more than five years. She has 16 years of corporate leadership experience, serving as chief operations officer of Homeland Financial, National Support Services and Nationwide Support Services. Schumann is also an active member of DBA.
