Mike states:
"Thanks for the email and recognition. As Mike Mitchell said, this has been a "noble vision" I have had for a long time to get everyone a professional designation. Continuing education culminating with a professional designation is extremely important for their self development and to VeriSign’s objective of investing in our employees."

In a conversation Mike had with Jodi Owens, CMA Education Team Leader, he mentioned that investing in his employees development reduces turnover for VeriSign so the ROI is simple.  It costs any company more if they have high staff turnover.  Invest in your staff, the benefits are enormous.

NACM’s certification program has helped define and establish professional standards in this demanding and rapidly changing field, and fosters recognition of those individuals who possess special expertise. You’ll join a select group of individuals who have made the commitment to excellence in credit management, career advancement, and an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.

Special mention needs to be made to Gyan Maharaj, CCE, who instructed most of these students to achieve their designation.  Many thanks need to go out to all our Instructors who give back so much to the Credit Community.
