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.


Ownership & Executive Management

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 alongside so many caring people each day!" 

Jameson Murray, Senior Vice President

Jameson joned the North American Recovery team in December 2008.He worked his way up through the ranks and is now one of our Senior Vice Presidents. He works closley with Dave, Anthony, and all of our managers to help run the company and keep things working like a well-oiled machine.

When talking about work, Jameson says, "I have been with NAR for a over 11years, and I have to say that I love it here! I started here at NAR as a data entry agent and through hard work I was promoted to the Legal Action Department, then to the Operations Department Manager, and now I'm a Vice President! 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!"


Anthony Fuentes, Senior Vice President

Anthony joined the North American Recovery team in November 2010. He started out in our Collection Department where he continually honed his skills until he became one of the best collectors we’ve ever had. After nearly ten years he was promoted to Senior Vice President where he works with Dave and Jameson to make sure everyone is on the same page. 

When not at work, Anthony spends a lot of his spare time out on the soccer field as a player and as a head coach. He enjoys the outdoors, snowboarding, fishing and spending time with his family and friends.

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 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!

Because of these values, I can confidently 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."
