Company: Beam Software

Title: Director of Implementation & Training

“Don’t ever let your wants overcome someone else’s needs.”

What is your favorite part of working at Beam Software?

I enjoy the challenge of helping our clients to use our software in the most effective way possible. It’s a constant source of delight to be present at the moment that a client suddenly “gets it” after perhaps struggling to understand.

In the receivables industry, what emerging trend has your attention?

What has my attention right now is the changing nature of how consumers wish to communicate and interact. I enjoy partnering with our clients to identify how we can assist our clients to take advantage of the latest technology while remaining compliant.

What industry change do you predict over the 5 next years?

Consumers increasingly want more autonomy and security in the account resolution process and I predict an increase in the use of payment websites that will enable consumers to resolve their debt while retaining anonymity.

How do you define success?

To me, success is helping others succeed and never giving up. I believe in sharing information that has helped me to better myself so that others can benefit from it and use it to help them achieve their goals.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in life?

“Keep moving and be curious” has been a guiding principle for me. I thrive on puzzling out solutions for my clients and my colleagues.

What advice would you give someone entering the receivables management industry?

Always remember that most people get into financial difficulty as a result of circumstances over which they have little control. While interacting with consumers, it is important to communicate and act with compassion, honesty, and patience.

What are you most proud of or what is your biggest accomplishment?

My biggest accomplishment and what I am most proud of is being a father and helping to raise a son who is making the world a better place.

What is your favorite book or podcast?

Favorite book: 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
Favorite Podcast: Hidden Brain

If you could do any other non-industry job for just one day, what would it be?

A non-industry job for just one day? I would definitely choose to be a Park Ranger.

People would be surprised if they knew….

People may be surprised to learn that I rode my bicycle across the United States!
