He has a true passion for doing what is right for our clients, our employees, and this company.”
Haag holds a degree in Business Management from Northern Michigan University and has been involved in various aspects of the ARM industry for nearly 15 years.
“I appreciate the opportunity to continue serving our employees and clients in this new capacity. While I will certainly enjoy the increased responsibilities, I especially look forward to watching State Collection Service continue growing in the coming years. I’m proud that we continue following in the footsteps of my grandfather and father by maintaining the foundation the company was built on – customer service and integrity.”
