CCR Vegas DBA Panel

00:0000:00
00:0000:00

Capital Club Radio - Back to the Future: Past Debt Buyer Association (DBA) Presidents discuss history and future of DBA 00:00 Announcer: On behalf of the Pro Business Channel, we're excited to welcome Michael Flock, the host of Capital Club Radio. Broadcasting on Pro Business Channel networks out of Atlanta, and on nine syndicated platforms including iTunes, Google Play and iHeartRadio. And recently interviewed on NPR. And now, live from the 20th annual DBA conference, please welcome Chairman and CEO of FLOCK Specialty Finance, Michael Flock.

[applause]

00:27 Michael Flock: Good morning, good morning. We at FLOCK Specialty Finance believe in the power of community, and that's why a little over a year ago we started a radio show called the Capital Club Radio Show, to build a community of thought leaders, of creative people in this industry who have made a difference for the Debt Buyers Association and others in the accounts receivable management sector. We talk about lessons learned, the successes and failures of the different companies, of the different leaders in this space, and we convert these broadcasts to podcast, which we distribute to the few thousand followers we have, and then we also distribute the podcast to our guests, and they can use the podcast as they see fit.

01:08 MF: This morning I am absolutely honored to be here today, hosting the Capital Club Radio Show, as we help celebrate 20 years of the Debt Buyers Association, or DBA. We're celebrating 20 years of connections, 20 years of trust, 20 years of building a new industry. And, if you're a Falcons fan like me, maybe you're celebrating 20 years of drinking.

[laughter]

01:36 MF: To be more serious, this has been an incredible roller-coaster of 20 years for all of us. There have been good times and bad times, we've seen periods of great supply, we've seen periods of very tight supply. Periods of low prices and high prices. Periods of loose regulation, and periods of very onerous regulation. So we've thrived and survived in large part, thanks to the leaders of the Debt Buyers Association, some of whom are sitting right here, and also the members and staff of the total Debt Buyers Association. DBA, I think, has been essential to this industry. It's been essential in defining it, supporting it, and helping grow, and helping legitimize it.

02:25 MF: In our company, FLOCK Specialty Finance, we talk a lot about the power and importance of passion and perseverance, which drive performance. And I can't think of five better leaders today who represent passion, perseverance, and performance than Walt Collins, Bob Morris, Mike Bendickson, Kaye Dreifuerst, and Todd Lansky. And we also wanna recognize, Dennis, sitting right here, who helped start this association. He had the idea for the Debt Buyers Association, I think, along with these folks. So it was his idea that brings us here today. So Dennis, thank you very much for that idea, and 20 years later we're celebrating it, it's now a reality.

03:17 MF: But without the passion and perseverance, there's no way this industry would ever have come so far from the gunslinger culture of the past, to the more professional, more consumer friendly culture, than the debt buying and collection industry that we are today. So, I think in general, the evolution of the past 20 years has been steady, but obviously not without its challenges, which we're gonna discuss here in a few minutes. And Jan Stieger shared with me some very interesting and positive statistics. According to Jan, our Executive Director, who you just heard from, there were only 60 members back in 1997, and today, there are 546. At our first annual conference, there were only 125 attendees, and today we're gonna be close to 900.

04:08 MF: So in spite of the recent consolidation in our industry, due to a drop of supply of consumer charged-off debt, and due to, obviously, the radical regulation that we've lived through,

Topics/Questions to Discuss: Topics And Talks

When working with DSG & Associates, Deborah will stress the importance of all five of these topics. In all cases, its about them your client, colleague, friend, not about you.

How to Build a Name for Yourself:

Building or enhancing your personal and professional brand: Once you understand who you are you can best represent your product and/or service to others.

Consummate Creative Connector:

Part of building a name for yourself is becoming a consummate creative connector learning and listening to others and building a trusting relationship. With this approach, you are building a new friend, colleague and client versus selling a product or service that this person may or may not want.

Strategic Business Development:

Doing the research to uncover and identify the best fit for your client and the folks they want to meet. Then cultivate and ultimately build a relationship. Have an eye for relationships and understand what your client may want; who is the best person to connect them to; based upon their mission, vision and strategic objectives.

Relationship Marketing:

Comes into play in understanding the background and expertise of the company or client you are working with and sharing that story through building rapport via social media, one-on-one, website and more.

Consultative Selling:

Happens once the research is done; connection is made; rapport is developed; discovery/questions are asked to naturally provide a solution to a pain point or concern.

Planning Successfully – Restrictive Agreements - Non-compete, Non-solicitation and Non-Disclosure

More about our guest Rett Peaden:

Rett’s practice focuses on helping the owners of closely-held businesses and professional services firms exit their businesses, whether that involves selling the business or transferring it to the next generation. Getting a business onto a solid footing with regard to succession planning is essential, and Rett is well-versed in sophisticated tax strategies and entity structuring techniques that may be needed. He will also advise on and guide clients through strategic acquisitions to grow their own businesses. Rett regularly counsels clients on corporate, partnership, and related tax-planning matters, including the negotiation and preparation of mergers and acquisitions agreements, the drafting of shareholders agreements, the formation of limited partnerships and limited liability companies, the structuring of inbound investment opportunities for foreign nationals, the creation and operation of private foundations and public charities, and the review and drafting of executive compensation agreements. In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

Preserving legacy. The estate planning side of the practice, often done for the owners of closely held businesses, is highly personal, involving an individual’s legacy and the achievements of a lifetime. Rett’s purpose is to help his clients prepare for the future, provide for their families, and accomplish their long-term personal and charitable goals. In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks. He knows how to take family dynamics into account, and draws insights from his work in business exit-planning and trust and estate administration to help families plan with foresight to avoid problems that could happen later on. Rett is often called upon by other professionals to advise them on the complicated income and transfer tax issues that can arise in the context of trusts and estates.

“I am driven by results. I want to achieve my client’s goals as quickly and efficiently as possible, and do so in a way that’s professional.”

Guiding the best business decisions. Matt Thiry understands the delicate balance between providing an environment for growth and managing risk. Prior to becoming an attorney, Matt’s background included operating businesses, as well as computer programming and related experience in the technology field. This business acumen allows him to offer legal advice with practical experience to businesses of all sizes, as well as business owners, families, and individuals.

As a business lawyer, Matt provides advice to existing businesses and start-ups regarding legal issues, such as risk management, covenants, business formation, and other day-to-day matters encountered by businesses. He also routinely assists clients by reviewing, negotiating and drafting contracts keeping business objectives and practicality in mind.

An experienced and practical litigator. Matt understands that lawsuits are a disruption to his clients' day-to-day affairs, and require the redirection of time and resources. In his practice, Matt strives to help clients minimize—or avoid—these disruptions. As a result of Matt's sound legal advice as to the best available options to manage their disputes, Matt's clients are able to better determine the course that most closely meets their goals.

With an approach that strives to understand his clients' business position and apply first-rate problem-solving skills, Matt is driven by results: achieving the best possible outcome with the least amount of disruption to his clients.

Arbitrator and Mediator Services. In addition to representing clients as an advocate, Matt is also registered as an arbitrator and general civil mediator with the Georgia Supreme Court Commission on Dispute Resolution. Matt’s strong background in business and litigation (including mediation, trial and appellate practice, and arbitration experience), combined with the training required in order to be a registered arbitrator and general civil mediator, ideally situate Matt to assist others resolve disputes either through mediation or arbitration.

Planning Successfully – Restrictive Agreements - Non-compete, Non-solicitation and Non-Disclosure More about our guest Rett Peaden:

Rett’s practice focuses on helping the owners of closely-held businesses and professional services firms exit their businesses, whether that involves selling the business or transferring it to the next generation. Getting a business onto a solid footing with regard to succession planning is essential, and Rett is well-versed in sophisticated tax strategies and entity structuring techniques that may be needed. He will also advise on and guide clients through strategic acquisitions to grow their own businesses. Rett regularly counsels clients on corporate, partnership, and related tax-planning matters, including the negotiation and preparation of mergers and acquisitions agreements, the drafting of shareholders agreements, the formation of limited partnerships and limited liability companies, the structuring of inbound investment opportunities for foreign nationals, the creation and operation of private foundations and public charities, and the review and drafting of executive compensation agreements. In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

Preserving legacy. The estate planning side of the practice, often done for the owners of closely held businesses, is highly personal, involving an individual’s legacy and the achievements of a lifetime. Rett’s purpose is to help his clients prepare for the future, provide for their families, and accomplish their long-term personal and charitable goals. In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks. He knows how to take family dynamics into account, and draws insights from his work in business exit-planning and trust and estate administration to help families plan with foresight to avoid problems that could happen later on. Rett is often called upon by other professionals to advise them on the complicated income and transfer tax issues that can arise in the context of trusts and estates. On the trust and estate administration side of the practice, Rett works in both contested and uncontested matters. He assists survivors in managing their inherited wealth, and often continues to serve their families and family businesses as a trusted advisor on the basis of the confidence he inspires in them.

00:07 Intro: Broadcasting live from the Pro Business Channel Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, it's time for Capital Club Radio brought to you by FLOCK Specialty Finance. Please welcome your host, Chairman and CEO, Michael Flock.

00:24 Michael Flock: Good morning and welcome to Capital Club Radio. We are delighted today to have one of our most distinguished investors of FLOCK, Tom Fricke. Tom is a successful CEO and leader in business, and also his personal life. He's got a very engaging story about how he's developed this philosophy of balanced leadership. And he did that through several years in some very important companies like HMSHost, where he was CEO. It's a North American and market leader in airport and turnpike concessions. Revenues of $2.5 billion dollars. He was also CEO of Cartridge World, the largest retailer of re-manufactured and refilled ink cartridges. He was also VP of Asset Protection at Home Depot, and Chief Administrative Officer at Giant Eagle, and held multiple senior positions at Pepsi.

He has a company now called Fricke Consulting, and he is currently working with Morgan Stanley Private Equity on acquisitions in food services. He's also a strategic advisor to the board of a spa and wellness center company, and now also working closely with an e-commerce business platform that is entering a new vertical. Tom is a graduate of the US Naval Academy, and also obtained his MBA from Stanford University. So Tom, tell me about, with all these interesting experiences you've had, from the Navy to corporate and now as an entrepreneur and a consultant to some start-up companies, how did you develop this theory or this philosophy of balanced leadership?

02:13 Tom Fricke: Well, first of all, it's great to be here, Michael, so thank you for the great introduction. I guess a couple of ways. Number one, when you're in turnaround roles, you tend to get forced into the leadership crucible relatively quickly. And in my case, it started early. When you go to the Naval Academy, that is a big part of your education,

David Windecher, The Windecher Firm, Author of  “The American Dream : HisStory in the Making” and Former Guest on Atlanta Legal Experts Appears on New CBS Reality T.V. Show - Hunted About Hunted Hunted follows nine teams of two in a real-life manhunt as they attempt the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today’s vast digital world as highly skilled investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to pursue and catch them. From searching their targets’ homes and scouring their internet and cell phone histories, to identifying behavioral patterns, Hunters in the field and Command Center investigators work together to identify clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture. Will the anxiety of being fugitives on the run cause teams to make a critical error, or will they be able to stay off the grid long enough to avoid being found within 100,000 square miles of the southeastern United States? A grand prize of $250,000 will be awarded to each team that successfully evades being caught for up to 28 days.

David Windecher grew up impoverished in the streets of Miami.  Surrounded by rampant crime and little opportunity, David chose a life of vice and violence out of desperation.

David was first arrested at age eleven.  Over the following eight years, David was further seduced by a dark street life racked with violence, drugs and money.  What started as desperate measures to feed his family of six turned into a criminal lifestyle.  Windecher joined a gang, sold dope, built and masterminded a crime ring and was arrested 13 times. David Lee Windecher risked his life and the lives of his family to leave the gang.  He beat the self-imposed negative cycle of street life through sheer will and commitment to be better. He vanquished self-doubt and conquered his deep fears of fitting in at school to pursue an education.

In 2005, David graduated summa cum laude from college and proceeded to graduate from John Marshall Law School in Atlanta. On May 25, 2014, David Lee Windecher took the Oath of Attorney in the very same court room he had appeared fifteen years earlier in handcuffs and an orange jumpsuit.  He is now a licensed attorney in both Georgia and Florida.

David has chronicled his transformation from defendant to defense attorney in a compelling new book entitled “The AmerIcan Dream – HisStory in the Making.”  David wrote this book to detail the challenges facing kids and teens growing up in poverty and in tough neighborhoods. His book is now serving as required reading in Atlanta metro area court ordered rehabilitation programs.

David also mentors non-violent teen offenders in the Atlanta metro area. He is the founder of RED, Inc. (Rehabilitation Enables Dreams), a non-profit organization which sponsors GED programs for young juveniles facing non-violent criminal charges and capable of rehabilitation through an education. RED, Inc.’s mission is to decrease recidivism and increase literacy among America’s youth.

David is the recipient of the Martindale-Hubbell Client Distinction award in both 2013 and 2014. David is also the recipient of the “40 Under 40” Award by both Georgia Trend Magazine and the Atlanta Business Chronicle.David Windecher is a business owner, HLN Legal Analyst and motivational speaker. Windecher speaks passionately about rehabilitation of youthful offenders, the “ban the box” initiative and solving America’s gang problem.

Planning Successfully – The Do’s and Don’ts of Selling Your Business - Part 2

On this episode an interview with Rett Peaden.

Representations and Warranties / Indemnification  What are these?  Why should a seller be concerned?  Personal liability

Real Estate  Own / Rent  Different holding company?  Selling the real estate with the operating business?

Trade Secrets / Intellectual Property  Does your business have these? Almost certainly to some extent.  How are these being protected?

Third-Party Contracts  Suppliers, distributors, subcontractors, customers, etc.  Do you have written contracts? Well-written?  Are these, assignable, terminable, renewable?

More about our guest Rett Peaden:

Rett’s practice focuses on helping the owners of closely-held businesses and professional services firms exit their businesses, whether that involves selling the business or transferring it to the next generation. Getting a business onto a solid footing with regard to succession planning is essential, and Rett is well-versed in sophisticated tax strategies and entity structuring techniques that may be needed. He will also advise on and guide clients through strategic acquisitions to grow their own businesses. Rett regularly counsels clients on corporate, partnership, and related tax-planning matters, including the negotiation and preparation of mergers and acquisitions agreements, the drafting of shareholders agreements, the formation of limited partnerships and limited liability companies, the structuring of inbound investment opportunities for foreign nationals, the creation and operation of private foundations and public charities, and the review and drafting of executive compensation agreements. In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

Preserving legacy. The estate planning side of the practice, often done for the owners of closely held businesses, is highly personal, involving an individual’s legacy and the achievements of a lifetime. Rett’s purpose is to help his clients prepare for the future, provide for their families, and accomplish their long-term personal and charitable goals. In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks. He knows how to take family dynamics into account, and draws insights from his work in business exit-planning and trust and estate administration to help families plan with foresight to avoid problems that could happen later on. Rett is often called upon by other professionals to advise them on the complicated income and transfer tax issues that can arise in the context of trusts and estates. On the trust and estate administration side of the practice, Rett works in both contested and uncontested matters. He assists survivors in managing their inherited wealth, and often continues to serve their families and family businesses as a trusted advisor on the basis of the confidence he inspires in them.

“I want to help my clients achieve their goals and attain the best possible results given their unique circumstances.” – Rett Peaden

Franchise Business Radio - Zaxby's Atlanta and the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research

On this episode and interview with Charlotte Haigler, Zaxby's Atlanta Co-Op

Topics to Discuss: Zaxby's Atlanta Co-Op has signed on as the Presenting Sponsor of Rally Idol 2, an evening of live musical performances by children fighting cancer, to benefit the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research.

ZAXBY’S NAMED PRESENTING SPONSOR FOR RALLY IDOL 2! HOSTED BY THE RALLY FOUNDATION FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH

American Idol Alumni Clark Beckham, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Anthony Federov to serve as celebrity judges

ATLANTA – The Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research announced today that Zaxby’s will be the presenting sponsor of Rally Idol 2, a rocking night of live musical performances on Saturday, January 28, by the most brave kids in Atlanta. Rally Kids, kids who are fighting or who have fought cancer, will be the stars of Rally Idol 2 as they take the stage in front hundreds of fans at The Buckhead Theatre to perform “American Idol style” with a live band.

American Idol alumni Clark Beckham, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Anthony Federov will act as celebrity judges, giving their feedback after each performance. The live audience at the Buckhead Theatre will “vote” on their phones throughout the evening to support childhood cancer research. Each vote is a donation and every Rally Kid is a winner!

Tickets for Rally Idol 2 are $20 for single admission and $80 for a family pass. To learn more about Rally Idol 2 or to purchase tickets, visit RallyIdol.org or follow @RallyIdol on Facebook and Twitter.

“I love the mission of the Rally Foundation and raising funds specifically for childhood cancer research,” said Charlotte Haigler, licensee of the Atlanta Zaxby’s co-op. “Childhood cancer affects so many in our community. We need more research money to go directly to stopping childhood cancer. I have a passion for Rally Idol and the awareness it brings to the children affected by cancer. It is a night of fun, music, fundraising and highlighting the exceptional singers and their talent. I have tremendous respect for the family that has so lovingly started Rally Idol and their selfless donation of time and energy. I believe their mission fits the Zaxby's brand perfectly!”

The first Rally Idol, a sold out event with more than 800 in attendance, made its debut in 2014 and raised $60,000 for childhood cancer research. Rally Idol 2 is the vision of 13 year-old Courtney Roach and her older sister, Emily.

“We were inspired to do something big and amazing for my friend (Rally Kid) Ruby and for families like Ruby’s who are fighting or have fought cancer,” said Courtney.

“We are thrilled to have Zaxby’s as a partner in the all-important fight against childhood cancer. There will be much to celebrate – Courtney’s and Emily’s vision, Zaxby’s generosity, stars giving back and talented kids affected by cancer pursuing their dreams,” said Dean Crowe, CEO and Founder of the Rally Foundation. “I am impressed that Courtney has brought together one of the nation’s fastest growing restaurants in Zaxby’s with these former American Idols, and even more impressed watching the talented Rally Kids perform at rehearsals. It is going to be an amazing night.”

About Zaxby’s Enjoying great chicken in an atmosphere where you could be yourself? That’s what childhood friends Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley wanted to achieve when they founded Zaxby’s back in the 1990s. Many years and locations later, Zaxby’s is still delivering on that promise: to serve delicious chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads in a fun, offbeat atmosphere where we welcome customers as friends. As of December 2016, Zaxby’s has grown to more than 800 locations in 16 states and is headquartered in Athens, Georgia. For more information, visit zaxbys.com or zaxbysfranchising.com.

In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks.

Amorino Interview with Ashley Manager at Atlanta Lenox Square

Created in 2002 by two childhood friends, Cristiano Sereni and Paolo Benassi, Amorino was born in the heart of Paris on Ile St Louis. The two founders' passion is highlighted in their values : exacting standards of quality, consistency, pleasure and flavor, as well as the cosy atmosphere in their shops. Paolo Benassi : "Our objective is to make the highest quality gelato as naturally as possible with no artificial colours or flavorings". Very soon their success allowed them to open more stores in many prestigious locations. The crowds in front of their shops are very much a part of the summer scene in various capitals. Cristiano Sereni : " greatest satisfaction is allowing people to discover, through Amorino, the magic of authentic traditional Italian gelato... it's part of my home, my native culture". The creation of each new flavor of gelato starts with the most rigorous selection of sourced ingredients, combined with the patience and skill of our highly trained chefs. We, at Amorino, are fully conscious of the requirements that are needed to make perfect gelato and we won't rush that delicate process. For each new recipe, we push ourselves to maximise the flavor and taste. How? By simply using organic and natural products, by sourcing our ingredients directly from reputable suppliers and by ensuring that we oversee every stage of the production process. In 2005, Cristiano Sereni and Paolo Benassi were able to centralize their gelato production which allowed them to combine their valuable know-how with new techniques from the drawing board to actual production of each flavor. Paolo Benassi "We insist on keeping a close eye on the production of our gelato to thus be able to guarantee the highest standard of quality to all our customers. In order to achieve this consistency, our products arrive at each shop ready to be served, this avoids the risk of product alteration and we can guarantee that our customers will enjoy the same experience regardless of where they go to buy it". Cristiano Sereni " Our gelato and sorbets are churned everyday in typical Italian fashion under the very watchful eyes of our chefs. Our recipes take into account the needed for the gelato to mature, to allow each flavor to develop to its full potential. We use only the freshest free range organic eggs and the highest grade whole milk. Absolutely no colouring agent or artificial flavors will be found in our gelato - this is one of Amorino's fundamental principles".

Brief Description of Product or Service: overcomeHER is a soon-to-be nonprofit organization that is designed to be a network for women. Our core mission is to create a community of women who collectively stand together, to change the world.

Today's society simply does not promote collaboration or unity among women. Instead, women are constantly fed negative news, stories, and images that do quite the opposite.

overcomeHER was created as not just another organization that is trying to empower women; our goal is to unify ALL women and create a cultural change! Upon our launch, we started the #overcomeHERcampaign where women from all walks of life shared their stories and testimonies as we believe with vulnerability, comes strength.

We strive to create authentic events and products that encourage servant leadership among women. Our events are not meant to be a one-time stop, but a place to feel at home in which our members can truly grow and become the best “HER”. Our sole duty is to lead by example so that all women can become their best in every aspect of life: career, lifestyle, relationship and spiritual paths.
