Today, we announced that two new members – Joann Needleman and Hardev Tumber – have joined the Sedric Advisory Board. We are proud and delighted that both have chosen to contribute their extensive experience in credit and collections to Sedric’s mission of enabling consumer finance organizations to grow while complying with tightening regulations.
As a Partner and Leader of Clark Hill’s Consumer Financial Services Regulatory & Compliance group, Joann Needleman advises banks, financial institutions, and financial services entities on regulatory compliance matters. She is a former member of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Consumer Advisory Board with extensive experience and expertise in credit and collections.
Hardev Tumber, Head of Collections at Revolut, a leading neobank, is a credit and collections industry leader with extensive experience in B2C and B2B markets at global organizations. At Revolut, he is responsible for ensuring that the collections system and related processes comply with local regulatory requirements. Mr. Tumber’s work with technology companies has included strategy optimization, CX, digital, automation, trace, legal, asset recovery, vendor management, and systems development.
We look forward to having our new Advisory Board members provide valuable perspectives to help us create innovative solutions that enable consumer finance firms to optimize revenues while protecting consumers and their brands.
Joann Needleman noted that the consumer finance industry is moving at a rapid pace and regulatory oversight is increasing. “To succeed,” she said, “finserv organizations need smart tools to ensure consumers are not only protected, but that businesses are complying with changing regulations. I look forward to working with Nir and the team as they bring innovative consumer-first technologies to the market.”
Hardev Tumber was particularly bullish on how Sedric’s native AI compliance platform monitors all customer interactions, across all channels and languages, to ensure compliance and provide data and tools that enable organizations to continually optimize their operations and outcomes. In his words, “Sedric has created a game-changing proposition in the regtech space, and I’m excited to be part of their journey.”
If you have data you can, with a reasonable degree of certainty, say, ‘Here's a report that illustrates exactly what's happened during that time period.’ That's key to shutting down the [legal] process and to potentially expediting resolution of a particular complaint.
Random sampling isn’t enough. Speech analytics can give better insights. Data from speech analytics systems can be used in a dual way: to ensure FDCPA compliance, but also to improve agent performance.
Work with the data you already have available and integrate it into your processes to create an appetite for more insights. Then gradually unleash the power of the full data treasure.
