Congratulations to ClearDebt CEO, David Mond, who has been awarded Personal Insolvency Practitioner of the Year 2012.
Now in their fifth successful year, the Insolvency and Rescue Awards are widely regarded by the industry as one of the most prestigious awards scheme in the insolvency and rescue sectors. The judging panel for the category of Personal Insolvency Practitioner of the Year will base their decision on the following criteria:
- Business building and commitment to clients
- Innovation and creativity
- Dedication to aiding the recovery process whenever possible and relevant
Here, Andrew Smith, ClearDebt Marketing and External Affairs Director talks about David and why he deserved the award.
“The achievements and contributions David Mond has made to the industry throughout his career are substantial.
I recall in an interview with the Manchester Evening News, David talked about his childhood and the inspiration which led to his decision of going into a career in insolvency and providing a “safe place” for people in debt.”
As one of the founder members of the Joint BBA/Insolvency Service IVA Standing Committee, David has assisted in successfully making the IVA process as smooth and certain as possible for people in debt whilst also being instrumental in drafting the IVA Protocol to ensure a level playing field across all.
Founding member and current Chairman of trade association the Debt Resolution Forum (DRF), David is a key driving force within of the debt solution industry.
A keen investor in local community projects, David has wholeheartedly encouraged ClearDebt’s most recent project – working with a local school to give the students the opportunity to work with ClearDebt and develop a website designed by young people, for young people about debt and managing money.
The project has been a huge success with the students and the website is due to go live in January 2013. There has been no commercial gain for this project (more information on this project can be found here: ClearDebt Supports Media Student at Local School. Through this project, we were so impressed with the standard of the students that ClearDebt also launched a summer internship programme inviting two of the students in for paid summer work, and a further two students to work out of college hours during their Autumn term time.
Congratulations to David from all of us at ClearDebt and Abacus.
