DBA International Installs New President and Elects New Officers at Annual Conference

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Earlier this month, DBA International elected Patricia (Trish) Baxter as president during the association’s 19th Annual Conference and Mark Naiman was named President Elect. Baxter began her term at the conclusion of a very successful conference attended by more than 1,000 people who displayed a cautiously optimistic view of the future and embraced the role certification has played in raising the standard in the industry.

Currently serving as Compliance Officer for Recovery Management Systems Corporation, a bankruptcy debt purchaser and servicer, Baxter provides regulatory and operational compliance management services for each of RMSC’s business units. Her prior industry roles include serving as General Counsel for Collins Financial Services in Austin, Texas and as General Counsel for Unifund in Cincinnati, Ohio.

“I am most encouraged by the support and involvement of our state and federal regulators with our association activities, a true demonstration of our conference theme, ‘Moving Forward Together.’  I look forward this year to working with my fellow board members, our association staff, and our professional consultants as we grow our membership, expand market opportunities for members, and continue our active advocacy at all levels,” Baxter noted. “I also welcome our new certification council members, which include representatives from debt buying companies, collections agencies, collections firms, credit issuers, and consumer advocates, as each of them has an important role in guiding our industry-leading certification program, now entering its fourth year.”
