Brooke Teal Joins EverChain (9/2021)
Brooke's Why: "I previously worked as an attorney representing debt buyers and lenders. Many of the cases I handled when litigating debt buyer cases had chain of title and media issues due to the traditional means of debt sale. I joined EverChain because the EverChain network and platform answered the problems I was seeing in the courtroom. I also firmly believed in EverChain’s mission to protect the consumer. It is extremely important for the customer experience to be positive throughout the entire life of the loan, especially at default; EverChain is the only means of debt sale to ensure that complete positive experience."
