FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES SHARE INSIGHTS INTO ACA INTERNATIONAL’S NEW PRESIDENT

  • At ACA International’s conference in Nashville last month, Jack Brown III was installed as the association’s president for the 2018-19 year. He will lead the organization through next year’s conference in San Diego. The ARM industry is facing a number of potential issues in that timeframe. The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection is expected to release its proposed debt collection rule at some point in 2019, possibly as early as March and the Federal Communications Commission is working on a proposed rule related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Both regulatory items have the potential to dramatically impact how collection agencies operate.So who is Jack Brown? And what makes him tick? To help shed some light onto these questions, AccountsRecovery.net asked a number of individuals in the ARM industry for their thoughts and impressions of Brown, so that everyone in the industry might come to know him and what he’s about. Although there may be some discrepancy as to what college he roots for, everyone is excited for JB3’s tenure.
