Ignite Consulting Partners reinforced its roster of experts to help auto finance companies and buy-here, pay-here dealerships.
The compliance firm recently announced the addition of Clint Rutherford, who has a background both in operations and compliance.
Ignite Consulting Partners highlighted that Rutherford has managed diverse teams across various servicing functions including collections, customer service, bankruptcy, insurance, title administration and dispute resolutions while often serving as the lead liaison for regulator examinations.
Rutherford is also a graduate of the SCCE’s CCEP program and the National Automotive Finance Association’s highly specialized consumer credit certification. He has helped companies build and improve on their credit reporting processes, consumer complaint handling policies and provided pivotal guidance on the development of internal compliance management systems (CMS).
“We are thrilled to add Clint’s impressive skills to Ignite,” said Steve Levine, Ignite’s chief legal and compliance officer. “He has a rare combination of compliance, operational and IT expertise that will be of great benefit to our clients.
“We often find ourselves tasked with implementing process improvement and training in addition to providing compliance services, and Clint’s unique skill set is a great fit for our hands-on approach,” Levine went on to say.
Ignite Consulting Partners, in partnership with DealerRE, is hosting a free webinar to answer questions about debt cancellation, collateral protection insurance and GAP products.
