The 8th Annual North American Repossessors Summit Sets The Bar


By hosting a record-breaking crowd, NARS 2016 proved to be bigger and better than ever before


DALLAS, Texas – April 22, 2016 – The North American Repossessors Summit (NARS), an industry event hosted by American Recovery Association, Inc. (ARA) and presented by Harding Brooks Insurance, is proud to announce the success of NARS 2016. The summit ushered in a new era for the recovery and remarketing industry. From a record-breaking attendance of nearly 600 attendees, including recovery and remarketing professionals and lenders, to a wildly successful auction contributing $9,600 to the Recovery Agents Benefit Fund, NARS has proven again to be the “must attend” event of the year.

NARS offered new networking opportunities this year, including new lender meetings, the DRN sponsored Tailgate Party and a sold out tour of AT&T Stadium. These opportunities are in addition to the 4th Annual NARS Golf Tournament, sponsored by MVTRAC, and the Harding Brooks Insurance sponsored Cocktail Party. This year’s NARS Golf Tournament proceeds went to the Council of Repossession Professionals.

“The new lender meetings were a tremendous benefit to both lenders and attendees,” said John Messiha, department manager repo operations at Capital One Auto Finance. “There’s no better place to connect with talented recovery and remarketing professionals who would be a great asset to our teams.”

The speaker lineup was a list of heavy hitters like Vietnam veteran and four-time Super Bowl champ, Rocky Bleier. Bleier brought the house down with his concluding presentation about perseverance and how the smallest to biggest things can help ensure you’re living out your purpose. The football legend not only talked about success and what it takes to achieve it, but also brought the fruits of his labor for all to admire – his four Super Bowl rings. Other dynamic speakers included Rick Sapio, Alex Vantarakis, Lance Raphael, Charles Matter, Navid Razi, Alex Price, Renee Low, Michael Eusebio and Justin Zane.

NARS 2017 dates will be announced soon.
