NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Auriemma Roundtables is pleased to announce that Sheldon Stewart has been named Co-Director of the Consumer Relations Consortium (CRC) and Editor of the Collections and Recovery Newsletter. With over 25 years of experience working with and managing various aspects of the collections process at industrial banks, Sheldon is a tremendous asset to the industry advancement efforts of the CRC and the Collections and Recovery Subscribers.

As co-director of the CRC, Sheldon will be integrated into the leading debt collection industry group that believes that debt collection and consumer protection are not mutually exclusive ideas; they can and should co-exist. Additionally, Sheldon will oversee the content for the Collections and Recovery Newsletter, which focuses on news and information relevant to creditors and others collecting in the first-party space.  

Sheldon currently oversees several Collections and Risk-focused Roundtables for Auriemma Roundtables. Previously, he has managed settlement operations, collection and recovery, fraud, credit reporting, auto/recreational lending, vendor management, and enterprise risk at Merrick Bank, GE Capital, and Discover/Morgan Stanley, among others. He has held positions in operations, finance, business process outsourcing, risk, marketing, and fraud. Additionally, Sheldon has expertise in process automation and integration. He has a BS degree in Finance from the University of Utah and an MBA in Global Management from the University of Phoenix.

"I am excited for this opportunity to connect with CRC members and reestablish long standing relationships,” Sheldon said. “I look forward to leveraging my experience in the industry and Roundtable insights within the CRC and with Collections & Recovery Subscribers.”

Missy Meggison, editor of insideARM and Director and General Counsel at Auriemma Roundtables, will co-direct the CRC alongside Sheldon.

“Sheldon’s wide breadth of experience will bring unique operational insight to Consumer Relations Consortium members,” Missy said of the announcement. “I’m looking forward to seeing how Sheldon utilizes his deep understanding of operations strategies to work with CRC members to create operational initiatives that improve productivity, advance the debt collection industry, and benefit consumers.
