North American Recovery's Core Strength = Our People

Most collection agencies brag about their great technology, their expertise in collecting a specific type of account, how long they’ve been in business, or how many collectors they employ. North American Recovery isn’t going to do that because we believe our company’s core strength is our people.

While we do have the latest technology—the most sophisticated phone system, a robust interactive and predictive dialer, the newest computers, and access to the latest and greatest skip-tracing data and techniques, and we constantly update our hardware and software to ensure that we stay on the cutting edge—it is our people that make the difference. We understand this. We hire the best people, support them with exceptional training and a great business model, then get out of the way and let them do their jobs. It’s as simple as that.

North American Recovery is small enough to care about each client as though they were our only client but big enough to provide everything a client needs from a collection agency.

Listed below are brief introductions of the management team at North American Recovery. We hope you enjoy them.



David J. Saxton
President, CEO & Owner

Dave is the President, CEO, Founder, and Sole Owner of North American Recovery. Dave started in the collection industry back in 1988. After spending five years learning the ropes as a front-line collector, he started his own agency in 1993, with a single client and a borrowed computer. Since then, his unique approach to every aspect of running a collection agency has allowed NAR to grow into a national collection agency with fifty-seven full-time employees and over 5,000 clients.

Dave was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He married his high school sweetheart, Shelley, and together they raised three children (Jorden, Chase, and Breeanne) in North Salt Lake. Dave is a motorsports enthusiast and has a passion for muscle cars, sports cars, and bullet bikes. He is a fitness fanatic too and enjoys a good workout. He also likes computers and technology, and LOVES his job. During the summer, Dave enjoys boating on Lake Powell. In the winter, he snowboards on the best snow on earth on the slopes in Utah. Most of all, he lives for spending time with his wife of twenty-five years and their three children, doing just about anything.

When talking about work, Dave says, "I love my job. The people I work with are smart, dedicated, and driven. We face challenges together, and continually come up with solutions that result in one of the most advanced collection models in the industry. It truly is a joy and I'm honored to be working along side so many caring people each day!" 


Department Managers

North American Recovery has three distinct divisions: Compliance & Legal Action, Sales &Client Service, and Collections. Each department manager brings his or her unique and successful leadership style in directing the individual departments. Together they form a cohesive group, which keeps everyone on the same page and ensures a high level of professionalism throughout the entire company.

Each of our managers started in a non-management position. Then, through months—and sometimes years—of outstanding job performance and by displaying natural leadership abilities, all were promoted to their current positions. Each manager has proven to be an outstanding leader in his or her own right. We are proud that each member of our management team has the unique perspective of having started in the trenches.

Troy Wilkerson, Vice President, Business Development

Troy started in our Sales department in April 2007. After four years of developing a new sales strategy and by playing an integral role in the increase of our monthly placements by over 100%, Troy attained the position of Sales & Client Service Department Manager in June 2011.

Troy graduated from BYU with a bachelor's degree in Family Science and a minor in Psychology. During his free time, Troy enjoys playing sports and spending time outdoors, camping and fishing with his wonderful wife and three children.

When talking about work, Troy says, "I began my employment at North American Recovery in  2007, and I couldn’t be more happy with the decision to join the TEAM!!  If you are considering  North American Recovery as your next place of employment, don’t hesitate.  If you are willing to work hard, and follow the training that you will receive, you will be rewarded.  We have a fun and challenging environment that promotes personal development as well as professional with opportunities for growth.

I can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work every day.  There is a great culture of trust, respect and loyalty to each employee here at NAR. I cannot picture myself working anywhere else!"


Angela Addy-Bowles, Data Entry Team Lead  

Angela started with the company in April of 2013. She quickly impressed us with her work ethic and tenacity about getting the job done. She has been one of our go-to employees and has steadily climbed the ranks to her current position.

When not at work, Angela enjoys watching basketball, going to movies and concerts, and exploring this beautiful state we call home.  She also likes, “To cook for my amazing family since we love to watch sports and spend time together.”

When talking about work, Angela says, "When I saw the opening for a "Data Entry Agent" position three years ago, I applied, not really knowing what to expect.  I simply thought I’d be entering random data into a computer program for a collection agency.  
Boy, oh, boy, how wrong could a person be?  I quickly learned that North American Recovery was not like other collection agencies, let alone like ANY other company I had ever worked for.  I was treated with the utmost respect from the very beginning. It was immediately obvious that was the standard for everyone.  
As I grew in my position, I not only learned the ins and outs of debt collection, I also learned what it was like to work for a company that valued my intelligence, my professionalism, and ultimately - my commitment.  
In my 1,000+ days of employment with N.A.R., I have NEVER once dreaded coming to work.  I mean, who wouldn't want to work for a company that not only excels in what they do, but they do so with such fierce integrity?  I consider myself extremely lucky to have found my place among the very BEST."
Justin Denney, Vice President, Collections

Justin's employment with North American Recovery began as a Management Trainee in early 2010. He excelled in this position and eventually became our full-time Collection Trainer. Six months later, he merited a promotion to his current position of Collection Department Supervisor.

In 2009, Justin graduated from Weber State University with a degree in Business Management. In his spare time, Justin enjoys playing sports and spending quality time with his beautiful wife.

When talking about work, Justin says, "I’ve been at N.A.R. for 6 years now and have absolutely loved my time here!  I realized when I first started working here that N.A.R. has core values and actually sticks to those values!  We are determined to be the best at what we do.  Those that are willing to apply their training, work hard and get after it are definitely rewarded!  N.A.R. has a  fantastic culture that treats people with respect, has trust in their employees and believes in the mission of the company.  This culture has allowed me to enjoy coming to work EVERY single day!"

When talking about work, Anthony says, "I worked as a first party medical biller and collector for many years before coming to North American Recovery. When the opportunity presented itself, I wasn't certain about switching over to the 3rd party side. Like many others I had only heard negative things about the collection industry. North American Recovery quickly turned that all around for me. From the first day I walked in to my 5th year here with North American Recovery, I get to see firsthand the positive impact we have with our clients and their consumers! I work for a company who has truly set out to make a positive imprint on the collection industry. My work here is challenging, dynamic, interesting and rewarding. I love it!"


Emily Bingham, Public Relations Coordinator

Emily joined NAR in June of 2015. She attended Utah State University where she majored in Theatre Arts and History. Her diverse background in the arts, private business and public policy has given her unique opportunities to meet interesting people from all over the world from all walks of life. She loves to travel and will hop a plane to visit all corners of the globe when given the opportunity.

In her free time Emily enjoys riding her bike, skiing, attending theatre and volunteering for political campaigns, but her most treasured time is sitting around the dinner table with her family discussing the day's events.

When talking about work, Emily says, "Why do I like working at NAR? It’s simple. At North American Recovery, we get down to business.

When I first started at NAR, I noticed right off the bat that every employee was very serious about the work they were assigned to do. Whether it was the front receptionist, a collector, a client service rep or data entry person, every employee approached their job in a serious and professional way – and as a result, we get a tremendous amount of work accomplished each and every day. Employees are often incentivized for meeting goals and contributing good ideas that help the company function better. At NAR, we work in a “drama-free” environment where professionalism, ethical behavior, and good communication is valued. These basic principles are among the many things that make NAR a great place to come to work.

Because of these values, I can confidently  go into the field and meet with clients knowing that I represent one of the best companies in the collection industry with the best team of professionals to back me up. In other words, we provide an excellent service to our clients because of the excellent people at North American Recovery."
