Successful stint there in two thousand eighteen he joined a subsidiary of first associates loan servicing. It's called activate financial in new collection agency, where Chris is the president, welcome. Chris. Thank you. And thank you for braving that, that windy weather yesterday on the golf course, with us, you are quite -ccomplish, their Tomase, that you could survive that long on that, that wind and Rin LA appreciate it. Michael. I appreciate the invitation. That was a challenge, but we weathered it your perseverance right? It just like in business. All right. Chris, you've had an incredibly rich set of positions and experiences across several pieces out, call out of the continuum of accounts, receivables management. Let's discuss some of these highlights I of your career starting in nineteen ninety two today, which is nearly thirty years thirty years. So you could re write a great book, maybe even a novel but I'm sure they'll be some great stories. Is in it from, you know, the experiences you have. There's certainly a few. Yeah, let's start the beginning. What why did you start with a collection law firm, Wallace Demeo that was one of the largest ones, I think at the time wasn't it was Wallace into mayo ended up being the largest collection law firm at that time in the country. Background on that. Was that Richard Demeo? And I were fraternity brothers. Okay. And I had done a couple of favors for some folks and Georgia, and had gotten an introduction to Richard through some senior exacts at Merrill, Lynch. And at the time they were looking for someone to come in and help them with business development and so we made the connection and I that's how I started in the industry in business development. What, what were your goals that year in what so Wallace Demeo did did both litigation? Yeah. In Georgia they had, you know they ended up having the NAN or the national attorney network. Right. And also were really big in bankruptcy recovery. And they really wanted they were very intensely with GE capital at the time. That's a big very big client. They wanted to diversify. And so they brought me on to. To help them, try to diversify their revenue streams, and we were very successful going out and bringing on, especially some bankruptcy recovery activities with some of the big credit card issuers back in the day. So my first experiences in sales in the industry right NAN that, that was quite a brand that was very successful. It was they sold. It didn't they to. They did they, they actually sold total systems in the end, and both Doug Wallace and Richard Ben out of the industry for a number of years now did very well with did you have any equity at the time I didn't because it was a law firm. There were, there were rules prohibiting that back back in those times, Georgia specifically. Right. And then a few years later became CFO of quality, check, right? Yes. So leaning on the counter, the bankruptcy recovery experiences Richard and Doug. Ended up meeting up with a Wayne Johnson, who's now the department of Ed running the, the next gen program, and we came up with this concept to have a national database of consumer bankruptcy filings kind of the forerunner of Banco. And so we ended up doing a marketing agreement cooperative marketing agreement with MasterCard went out and met with all the issuers. And so I got exposure there to all the credit card issuers at a young age in the industry, so to speak, and everybody loved the idea because Banco didn't exist, but they didn't love the idea of, of somebody other than MasterCard owning it. So actually, the concept became part of the issuers clearing. Okay. And, and then that led to the organizations that were gathering the data for that, like Banco so very early involvement in, in that side of the. History. Excellent. And then you moved onto JD Yar, where I think you are. Also in business development is so, so I went over to work for a Wayne Johnson and all attack CFO. And we ended up selling Qualitech couple years later to first data, when I eight ahead done. It's IPO, and I was charged at first date of with running a new organization called credit performance services which was a first party BPO collections outsourcing company kind of one of the first ones out there. And I be peo-. Okay. One of the first I mean there were, there were couple others like g c services doing doing in that area. But our main marketing process was to go cross L the all of the first date of credit card issuers. Okay. And it was in the. Yeah. Right in the middle of the. Nineties and they're huge growth in the credit card industry of that time. So there was a need for bricks and mortar. It was before people were going off shore or near shore. So I ended up we ended up going from me and an office in Atlanta to about nineteen hundred employees and just three years and just doomed, I party all day long just cranking up. It was the right time to be biz business process outsourcing. Yes. Absolutely. You're the right man at the right time. Yeah. I've been fortunate enough or lucky enough to, to be in that position several times in my career, but it was a lot of hard work, a lot of strategy, but it worked out. But then, so then you went to J D R. I did after I left. Yeah. After I left first data, I worked for JD are for. Almost a year up, but I had interviewed with. Oh, they were interested in me coming on board and helping them in operations. So I ended up while I was at Asai Brian Lehrer. Oh, right. Came came back to me and said, will you come be my operations guy for the for the debt buying entity portfolio services? Right. So I went work with Brian and OS, I and ran operations there and the debt buying arm for four years. Okay. Were there any surprises along this long journey that you had up until before you founded vital? What, what? What did you? Yeah. I know surprises. It was just a lot of hard work and learn learning the industry and lock. But what's the old saying, you know, luck is where perseverance and in and work effort, hard, work me opportunity. Right. So in you gr-. Growing has a executive and a leader. Yeah. Just putting the work in, you know, kind of going back to a central theme. I've had of you know dedication desire determination to succeed, the other thing that's a pattern. I think in your career is that you've had a pretty big network of relationships with others in different parts different pieces of the receivables management, continual, you know, in bankruptcy, I party third party, and you have relationships with leaders in each one of those segments. I have I've prided myself and in certainly building relationships and, yeah, it's it and never burning a bridge and right, end cultivating those relationships and friendship. Right. Probably goes back to my fraternity days. Chapman, president and rush chairman and, and so forth of sales skills. But also, I've really prided myself in hell. Helping others develop in the industry. A lot of the, the guys that have worked with me or reported to me over the years. I've I really enjoy seeing them succeed, also. So what's interesting and this, I love to talk about this, because this is what we believe it. A flock is more than a transaction. And that's what you have been doing. You've been building these relationships which drive transactions, but you've been developing people along the way partners, just like at the fraternity, you know, you said, you know, you UN Richard Demeo of fraternity brothers, but that, that there's a bond there that you must have created along the way and all these other companies. And after thirty years, it's a pretty rich network. Isn't it is? It's surprising. So you know, I was in Atlanta last month. And my whole schedule was about going around and talking with guys had I worked with that are now leading collection operation, you know, across Atlanta or, and I do that. Yeah. Every day. So the they've been. Very successful. And, and I take some pride in that will, right. And so, so much, I think in the collection industry depends on trust between people and without those relationships. It's hard to build up trust quickly takes time. You're eye and has an entrepreneur and having started firms and now starting another firm again, it is about that trust. And going going to those people and saying, you know, me, you know what I can do how I operate how I treat people and would you take a chance with me again? And, you know, bringing some awesome placements, particularly and BPO when you're, you're at the early stages of it. And a lot of people were paranoid about giving up relationships with their customers to someone else. So that's why that trust. Also was crucial people didn't want to lose contact or somehow violate their own relationship with their consumers. So they have to have confidence in you your. Organization. It's culture and it skills, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. And emulating a lot of those operations is, is part of it, but doing it the right way is always been bene- key. And making sure that you have the quality and the organization. I mean anybody can can run the technology tools. But what, what do the people do? How are you, managing them? How are you developing them? And what quality have in the organization and delivering a quality product and, and being upfront and honest, and trustworthy is a key, right? Absolutely. So let's move now to vital vita solutions. I mean you're having fun at oocyte by so why would you leave you were successful there? Why did you Ali you, you started vital in two thousand two were there to two thousand sixteen? That's fourteen years in one company. That's a longest you've ever been with one company, of course of your own right? But why? Well, actually, Chris goo gal. It is kind of saw the writing on the wall that I was I is, you know, what was what was going on toward the end of the OS. I days before it was taken over by NCO. Okay. And we had done a very had worked together on several deals, but we had done a very large deal with Ford Motor credit on subprime portfolio that they had to take over the servicing liquidating portfolio takeover hundred percent of the servicing, and it was a major, it was major of app for OS I in a major event for both of us to be able to bring that home. And we kind of looked at each other and said, hey, why can't we do this for ourselves? It was kind of the classic entrepreneurial. You know light bulb going off at dinner one night. And so we, we spent some serious amount of time. Putting together a an ice business plan meeting with some angel investors, and we ended up go. With a group in, in Atlanta brought in a couple million dollars long with a lot of our own money. Okay. And launched launch vital. And, you know, Chris had the background in the auto finance industry, and I had the background in with the debt buying industry. So, because at the time, oh, Asai portfolio services was the largest debt buyer, right? We own eye managing and leading operation that, that was liquidating nineteen million accounts at the time. And that was the largest so, so, yeah, we focus on those two verticals. Am back to the trust thing back to business development thing back to relationships. People trusted, both Chris, and I and we, we were able to put it together. We operational in December of two thousand two and continued to grow the business all the way. Yeah. All the way through two thousand fourteen fifteen were there any surprises along. This journey. Always sleepless nights. Oh, absolutely. I think, you know, has entrepreneur, you always have some sleepless nights. But when you, you have a lot of your own investment in money in, in the operation, and you're trying to make a half a million dollar payroll every year and you hit things like the, you know, the financial crisis ten years ago. Right. And then how was that away? You know what happened was the auto business actually continued to do? Well, because we were doing and term lease work and leases eneterd leases those accounts, kind of come out after thirty six months after origination. Okay. So we didn't see a downturn from the two thousand eight two thousand nine cycle until three years later. Okay. But it really hit the debt buying industry hard, and we saw we saw liquidations dropped forty percent. So then we weren't making money and any longer. So we. Very professionally very politely, exited some of those relationships, and, and started building the more of the, the auto business, and we became known has one of the agencies that had the largest auto client list, and Ryan portfolios. And, and then, you know, I think that was that was a tough time, but we got through it and then we continue to grow through, and then the whole resulting, you know, compliance CF PB environment that's created by the Obama administration as a result of the downturn and our largest client was Wells Fargo dealer services, represented, twenty.
