- [In celebration of his Roger Weiss’s tenure as president of ACA International, AccountsRecovery.net is re-publishing this profile, which originally ran in December 2016.] As a long-suffering fan of the Chicago Cubs (until recently, of course), Roger Weiss needed to develop a great sense of humor to deal with year after year of frustration and futility.

Weiss is one of the most respected and sought-after trainers in the collections industry and reading the profile below should give you a sense of why he is in such high demand.
