Consumer Relations Consortium Recognizes John Rossman with Dedicated Service Award
Moss & Barnett is pleased to announce that John Rossman, chair of Moss & Barnett creditors' remedies and bankruptcy team, has been recognized by the Consumer Relations Consortium (CRC) with a Dedicated Service Award. John has been a part of the CRC and has served on the steering committee since its founding in 2013. Excerpts from the insideARM article announcing the award, Consumer Relations Consortium Recognizes Kraft and Rossman with Dedicated Service Awards (July 12, 2017), are below:
The CRC is a group of more than 30 forward-thinking and compliance-oriented "larger market participants" in debt collection (as defined by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau). As of 2017, the group now also includes creditors and – as part of its new Innovation Council – technology providers. The unique mission of the CRC has been to develop collaborative relationships with consumer advocacy groups and other thought leaders, along with regulators, in part to inform the ongoing debt collection rulemaking process.
John Rossman has dedicated countless hours to the group, including casual discussion among peers of the latest court cases affecting the industry and – more formally – drafting input for regulators on behalf of the group. Among many notable projects, John coordinated the CRC’s 100+ page response by more than 26 contributors to the CFPB’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for debt collection. “He will no doubt provide similar leadership when the time comes to respond to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking,” said Tim Bauer, co-executive director of the CRC.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to John on this well-deserved recognition!
