Six Servicers to Speak at Affinity Management Symposium

Feet Group Talking BHAffinity Consulting Group announced the Third Annual Management Symposium taking place October 20-21, 2016, according to a recent release. This year’s two-day training event focuses on how successful leaders transform their law firms during challenging times.

Each year the Symposium brings together attorneys and legal professionals in default firms. Affinity says that the default services legal industry knows now, more than ever, that law firms need to be poised to anticipate and adapt to change. The Symposium is two days of training dedicated to giving partners, managers and team leaders the business tools needed to transform their firms’ processes, technologies, and culture to create success even in times of change and uncertainty.

“After attending the first Management Symposiums, I knew I did not want to miss another!” said Robyn Padgett, CEO of Timothy D. Padgett, P.A. “Affinity does a tremendous job openly sharing information on how better to cultivate, develop and manage the operation of our firm. It’s easy to buy in when you trust the people delivering the message!”

This year, Affinity has announced a few additions to the speaker lineup for the Symposium. Michael Zevitz, Shareholder at South Law and Ed Kirn, Shareholder at Powers Kirn will be speaking to firms about improvements they have made in their firms in the “In the Trenches” session.

Affinity shares that the Servicer Panel at the Symposium this year boasts an esteemed lineup of industry experts. Led by Roy Diaz, Managing Shareholder at SHD Legal Group, the panel currently consists of James McPherson, Litigation Supervisor, VP at Central Mortgage; Daniel Chilton, Assistant General Counsel, North American Operations & Technology at Citigroup; Cheryl Marchant, SVP, Default Services at Freedom Mortgage; Paul Johannsson, Senior Manager and VP – Foreclosure, Bankruptcy and Complex Division at BSI; Rosalie Escobedo, Program Manager – VA Support at VRM Mortgage Services; and last but not least Lance Bell, First VP, Default Servicing at PennyMac Loan Services.

Affinity’s management consultants will bring real world examples and sample work products to share with Symposium participants so that they return to their firms and make real differences in the way their law firms work.

“In an industry of constants ups and downs, it is critical that firms learn to adapt and excel during these opportunities for growth and evolution,” remarked Erica Fujimoto, Affinity Director of Default Services. “It is our honor to work together annually to create an atmosphere of cooperation, collaboration, and innovation to help the leaders in the Default Services industry develop the skills and tools that they need to delight their clients every day.”
