CSA appoints new Head of Sales

The Credit Services Association (CSA), the voice of the UK debt collection and purchase industries, has appointed Mark Buckley as its new Head of Sales.

Mark’s immediate task is to secure further sponsors and delegates for the UK Credit and Collections Conference (UKCCC) 2018, which takes place on 13 September at the Crowne Plaza in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Mark will also be selling the benefits of CSA Apprenticeships in debt collection, compliance, and leadership and management, following last year’s appointment on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP).

“I am looking to hit the ground running by increasing sales in all areas of the Association especially for the upcoming UKCCC and have already set a target of exceeding last years’ total.”

Mark is also focused on increasing memberships as well as promoting other learning and development opportunities with the CSA: “I am looking forward to helping to further enhance the reputation of the CSA and continue to provide value and continuous improvement for our members, whilst also looking at ways to grow and attract new ones.”

Mark has over 20 years’ experience working in sales, with a proven track record of account management and customer service. He has worked across a number of different sectors and industries, including retail, distribution and finance.

Peter Wallwork, Chief Executive of the CSA, says Mark will play an important role: “I am pleased to welcome Mark to the head office team, he joins the Association at a busy and important time, so his experience will be key.”
