Performance Source Inc: More than 46 
years of Business Debt Settlement Experience

    

         

 

 

 

Founded in 1963 by Jim Herst, Performance Source Inc (PSI) is one of the true pioneers of business-debt settlement (or �payables management�) services for closely held companies.

Having worked in the collections industry early in his career, Jim saw firsthand that business debt can become a problem even for well managed companies. He also recognized that although these firms were willing to pay their debts, they either did not have the time to work out settlements with their creditors, or they were reluctant or unsure of the process. �I saw far too many companies filing bankruptcy or taking on costly business-debt consolidation loans,� he adds.

PSI, which has always been based in Chicago�s northern suburbs, initially worked with small local companies. Within a few years, however, PSI had clients nationwide, including:

 Book stores
 Card and party-supply retailers
 Clothing stores
 Construction companies
 Manufacturers and fabricators
 Many other closely held companies

The variety of businesses that PSI has served, ranging from small start-ups to larger, multi-million dollar companies, is one of the major reasons that debt-burdened firms choose PSI today. Another is PSI�s high success rate in helping Clients avoid bankruptcy and debt consolidations.

In 2003 Steve Newman joined PSI as its Principal. He is now President, overseeing all day-to-day functions of the company, and works closely with Jim Herst to plan client-service and debt-negotiation strategies.
