North American Recovery's Core Strength = Our People

Most collection agencies brag about their great technology, their expertise in collecting a specific type of account, how long they’ve been in business, or how many collectors they employ. North American Recovery isn’t going to do that because we believe our company’s core strength is our people.

While we do have the latest technology—the most sophisticated phone system, a robust interactive and predictive dialer, the newest computers, and access to the latest and greatest skip-tracing data and techniques, and we constantly update our hardware and software to ensure that we stay on the cutting edge—it is our people that make the difference. We understand this. We hire the best people, support them with exceptional training and a great business model, then get out of the way and let them do their jobs. It’s as simple as that.

North American Recovery is small enough to care about each client as though they were our only client but big enough to provide everything a client needs from a collection agency.

Listed below are brief introductions of the management team at North American Recovery. We hope you enjoy them.

 

Ownership

David J. Saxton, President, CEO & Owner DaveSaxton@North-American-Recovery.com 

Dave is the President, CEO, Founder, and Sole Owner of North American Recovery. Dave started in the collection industry back in 1988. After spending five years learning the ropes as a front-line collector, he started his own agency in 1993, with a single client and a borrowed computer. Since then, his unique approach to every aspect of running a collection agency has allowed NAR to grow into a national collection agency with fifty-seven full-time employees and over 5,000 clients.

Dave was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He married his high school sweetheart, Shelley, and together they raised three children (Jorden, Chase, and Breeanne) in North Salt Lake. Dave is a motorsports enthusiast and has a passion for muscle cars, sports cars, and bullet bikes. He is a fitness fanatic too and enjoys a good workout. He also likes computers and technology, and LOVES his job. During the summer, Dave enjoys boating on Lake Powell. In the winter, he snowboards on the best snow on earth on the slopes in Utah. Most of all, he lives for spending time with his wife of twenty-five years and their three children, doing just about anything.

When talking about work, Dave says, "I love my job. The people I work with are smart, dedicated, and driven. We face challenges together, and continually come up with solutions that result in one of the most advanced collection models in the industry. It truly is a joy and I'm honored to be working along side so many caring people each day!" 

 


Department Managers

North American Recovery has three distinct divisions: Operations, Sales & Client Service, and Collections. Each department manager brings his or her unique and successful leadership style in directing the individual departments. Together they form a cohesive group, which keeps everyone on the same page and ensures a high level of professionalism throughout the entire company.

Each of our managers started in a non-management position. Then, through months—and sometimes years—of outstanding job performance and by displaying natural leadership abilities, all were promoted to their current positions. Each manager has proven to be an outstanding leader in his or her own right. We are proud that each member of our management team has the unique perspective of having started in the trenches.

Boy, oh, boy, how wrong could a person be?  I quickly learned that North American Recovery was not like other collection agencies, let alone like ANY other company I had ever worked for.  I was treated with the utmost respect from the very beginning. It was immediately obvious that was the standard for everyone.  
 
As I grew in my position, I not only learned the ins and outs of debt collection, I also learned what it was like to work for a company that valued my intelligence, my professionalism, and ultimately - my commitment.  
 
In my 1,000+ days of employment with N.A.R., I have NEVER once dreaded coming to work.  I mean, who wouldn't want to work for a company that not only excels in what they do, but they do so with such fierce integrity?  I consider myself extremely lucky to have found my place among the very BEST."

When the opportunity presented itself, I wasn't certain about switching over to the 3rd party side. Like many others I had only heard negative things about the collection industry. North American Recovery quickly turned that all around for me. From the first day I walked in to my 5th year with North American Recovery, I get to see firsthand the positive impact we have with our clients and their consumers! I work for a company who has truly set out to make a positive imprint on the collection industry. My work here is challenging, dynamic, interesting and rewarding. I love it!

Because of these values, I can confidently meet with clients knowing that I represent one of the best companies in the collection industry with the best team of professionals to back me up. In other words, we provide an excellent service to our clients because of the excellent people at North American Recovery."
