Evans & Green Collection Manager Earns IACC Certification

E&G Collection Manager, Dan Tenney has been designated as a Certified Commercial Collector by the International Association of Commercial Collectors.

IACC Certified Commercial Collectors must pass a rigorous exam that consists of industry specific questions relevant to commercial collections and focuses on the duties and responsibilities of commercial collectors.  The exam was designed and written by some of the top commercial collectors in the industry.

Members of the IACC recover millions of dollars annually for their clients and provide invaluable assistance to credit departments in controlling mounting debts.  IACC Certified Commercial Collectors are educated and tested on all facets of commercial collections and are therefore better able to provide credit grantors with the expert collection services that are needed in today’s competitive business world.

Dan joined E&G in early 2017, bringing with him a wealth of experience in public affairs (US ARMY), online marketing/research, event & personnel management and other creative applications. This “cocktail” of experience and skills gives E&G an edge in person and asset skip-tracing, settlement negotiations, and conflict resolution.

A CONVERSATION WITH BRENT GREEN

Brent D. Green & Douglas S. Evans named Missouri “Super Lawyers” for 2017

Brent D. Green and Douglas S. Evans have been continuously recognized as Super Lawyers since 2008. To be a Super Lawyer an attorney must go through a rigorous proceeding. The selection process involves ballots being mailed to thousands of lawyers in the state who have been in practice for five years or more. Each nomination carries a point value; lawyers cannot vote for themselves. An independent candidate search is also involved by reviewing national/local periodicals, online searches, and meetings with law firms. The next step is evaluating the candidates for verdicts, experience, honors, professional activity, lectures and various other factors. An attorney must attain a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. After dividing attorneys into groups based on the size of their firms, the candidates with the highest points in each group are selected. Only five percent of lawyers in Missouri are selected as Super Lawyers.
