Disadvantaged Higher Ed Entrepreneur Achieves Federal HUBZone Certification

Buffalo, NY – Pulcher World Management, LLC (PWM) today announced it achieved Federal HUBZone certification late last month, a distinction further qualifying the company as an excellent choice for any Federal Private Collection Agency (PCA) seeking to meet subcontracting requirements for a U.S. Department of Education (ED) task order.

“I am very excited about the future of PWM and its ability to help PCAs meet their goals,” said James Cunningham, President. “Here in Western New York, our location provides a plethora of skilled potential employees and experienced executives.  Our core belief is to treat our biggest investment – our employees – with the ultimate respect, so they can best counsel borrowers.  I am looking forward to personally training and tutoring all of our people to ensure compliance across the board.”

With this announcement PWM is believed to be the only HUBZone-certified collection agency that is also a small disadvantaged business (SDB), enabling PCAs to take credit for necessary expenditures with both HUBZone and SDB firms through one relationship, saving the average PCA tens of thousands of dollars per month, and in some cases up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per month, in work that would otherwise be outsourced to multiple partners.  Federal regulations require those with HUBZone commitments in approved subcontracting plans to make subcontracting awards to certified firms only, and not those simply seeking a certification that may or may not be obtained.  To become certified, among other things, a firm must have its principal office within a HUBZone and must have at least 35% of its staff living in a HUBZone.
