Former Oklahoma Governor, Brad Henry, became a Shareholder and elected Director of CFS2 on Thursday, according to a press release.
"CFS2 is a remarkable opportunity to create an entirely new blend of consumer service and social impact," Henry said.
As Director of CFS2 Henry is responsible for the strategic planning and capital planning process; this includes the use of Social Impact investing.
"By focusing on non-traditional ways to help consumers overcome financial difficulties, CFS2 has the potential to impact millions of lives and build important long-term relationships with a consumer group that is not well understood by marketers," Henry said.
Owned by Bill and Kathy Bartmann, CFS2 is a Tulsa based debt collection company that, not only helps people get out of debt, but also provides free services to get customers back on their feet.
Owner, Bill Bartmann's mission with CFS2 is to reform the debt-collection industry, and he believes Henry is the right person to help.
"I am convinced we are on the right track to reforming an industry of rampant abuse and Governor Henry will play a big role," Bartmann said. "His commitment to be a part of our company is proof of his belief that what we are doing is important and that we have the ability to change millions of lives."
Henry has been working with former chief of staff, Gerald Adams, at the Henry Adams Companies, providing consulting and strategic planning services along with legal counsel.
