Monday, November 4, 2013 Nashville, TN – On October 24th and 25th, Primeritus Financial Services held its first-ever Agent Partner Event for its national agency partners in Nashville, Tennessee, home to the Primeritus Corporate offices. Over 100 agents joined the Primeritus management team and staff for a tour of the new offices, a reception and dinner on the 24th. The agent partners joined the Primeritus staff the following day for a Nashville city tour and business session on board the Music City Queen riverboat on the Cumberland River. During their ride aboard the Music City Queen, Primeritus hosted an industry meeting. It lead with a discussion period, followed by a lively question and answer session. “We feel that our agent partners are the most valuable piece of our solution for our clients,” said Primeritus CEO Chuck Tapp. “As the result of Primeritus exiting the direct recovery business earlier this year, we have given approximately 60,000 additional repos to our agent partners.” “It was great interacting with everyone,” said Keith Baggett, VP of Industry Affairs. “I enjoyed connecting with old friends as well as discussing important business ideas with new partners.” Baggett continued, “Directing Primeritus business to our agent partners strengthens the foundation supporting this partnership.” The following are selected comments from some of the agents who were in attendance: “It’s always good to see old friends and meet new associates. It was good to be there and I’m confident that the industry is on the right track.” – Herb with The Ahlquist Agency out of Massachusetts “Normally you work with clients who are located several states away from you and you’re unable to have face-to-face conversations. To me, this agent event was extremely successful in building that connection and building a stronger foundation which hopefully will lead to a mutually beneficial business relationship to help both parties achieve the next level of success.” – Claudia with IRB out of Illinois “Thank you for showing us such a wonderful time at the agent event! It truly was a treat to meet new friends from not only Primeritus, but your agent network as well. Again, thank you for such a fun and informative event. We’re already looking forward to the next event!” – Michelle with AA Repo out of Kentucky “We want to thank you again for spending so much time getting to know us. We feel privileged to be working with a company that cares about this industry as much as we do. It’s an honor to meet such a dedicated team. If you ever need anything from us, do not hesitate to call us as we are there to support you and your team in any way we can.” – Jordan with Alpha Recovery out of Arizona “To everyone at Primeritus, we just really want to thank you for such a great time in Nashville. Just walking around and talking to everyone gave off the feel of a true partnership! I’ve never seen such happy and positive employees, and that speaks volumes. We’re excited to be part of such a great team and partnership. After the first night in Nashville, we knew that this was going to be great. We thank you for caring about our needs and what will make us all successful in this industry! We’re really looking forward to the future with everyone at Primeritus and growing together. Thank you again for a spectacular event and we look forward to many more.” – Lucy with Reliable Recovery out of Arizona “I just wanted to say thank you again for hosting all of your agents. It was a very informative and beneficial meeting for me, and my company. I was wondering if there was a way you could compile a list of attendees to be sent out (with their permission) so that we can keep in touch with some of the other agencies we meet during our trip?” – Emily with Stinger Recovery out of Texas “I loved it! I learned a lot of things and meeting people from the company was great. Primeritus needs to do this more often. They really went all out.” – Vickie with Bomboy Recovery out of Oklahoma “The event was great! It was very informative. Work and relaxation all in one!” – Phillip with American Recovery of Augusta out of Georgia “When we visited Primeritus, we saw they had great teamwork and were very dedicated. I also enjoyed and thought it was great that the CEO, Chuck Tapp, was down to earth and treated everyone with respect.” – Paul with Howard’s Recovery out of Florida “Meeting the right people, shaking the right hands, and sharing industry knowledge with your peers is priceless. Primeritus’ 2013 Agent Partner Event was a great success and by far sets the bar. We encourage all agents to join us next year with questions, concerns, praises, and industry-related success!” – Chris with PRG Asset Recovery & Holdings out of Texas “The agent event was a great step towards building a good dialogue between the agents and Primeritus’ staff. The event gave us the assurance that Primeritus has the best interest of their agents in mind. I think this was a great event to promote a continued working relationship towards a common goal. Thank you again for having us.” – Chris with Omni Recovery out of Alabama Since our inception in February of 2012, Primeritus Financial Services has strived to provide our clients with value-added, outsourced repossession management and skip tracing services, leveraging a national network of certified agents and unique investigative techniques to quickly and reliably secure our customers’ collateral.
