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:
Card and party-supply retailers
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.
