TJ Nance, Director of Credit for Walters Wholesale Electric in Signal Hill, CA, is a huge supporter of CMA, having served on the CMA Board of Directors since 2015. On the Board and in his credit groups, he is a discussion leader, drawing on his diverse professional experience in credit and sales before that. He also participates in nearly all CMA events. His can-do attitude is infectious, as he often inspires others to be the best version of themselves that they can.
Nance says that industry credit group membership with CMA is the greatest benefit to his company. He strongly believes that “the practice of sharing trade data in my Group has been a great help to Walters.”
At Group meetings, the always jovial Nance is entertaining, engaging and welcoming to other credit professionals. Nance is a dynamic leader who constantly challenges his Group by leading in thought-provoking conversations about laws and other factors that can affect the way a company gets paid. His unique career path to credit which began in sales and management also has helped provide perspectives to credit professionals that they may not have otherwise considered.
“To me, the biggest challenge facing credit teams today continues to be getting paid on time, otherwise there’d be no need for credit managers. I’m thankful that I have CMA’s support which helps me do my job better,” he said.
While he’s not working, Nance is an avid golfer who despite the hundreds of rounds played has only one “Hole In One” to his credit.
Thanks to TJ for his contributions to CMA!
