Mark Naiman currently serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of Absolute Resolutions Corporation in San Diego, California, overseeing all facets of operations, including management of personnel and creation and administration of policies. Naiman has been involved in the stratification of over 700 individual transactions, as well as the analysis behind pricing and expected liquidations for over 17 billion in purchased accounts. This is his fourth year serving on the association Board of Directors.

“Mark’s commitment to the industry over the years has been invaluable,” said Jan Stieger, Executive Director of Receivables Management Association. “He has recently served as Chair on the Fundraising Committee and Co-chair on the State Legislative and Conference Committees. His dedication to transparency and leading by example aligns beautifully with the association’s overall mission.”

While the industry prepares for a year ahead with optimism, Naiman is prepared to lead the association and its membership in its efforts to work with regulators and set the global standard for consumer protection and professional practices.

Helping with the strategic initiatives ahead is the new Board of Directors, which for the first time includes a Director from a Certified collection agency. “The talent and experience on this newly elected Board positions us well for what is to come,” said Naiman. “I look forward to working closely with them as we open new markets to our members, advocate for fair regulation, and prepare successful educational events. Having a Certified collection agency on the Board will broaden our collective perspective, which brings value to the association.”
