(ST. LOUIS, MO) February 8th, 2022 – The Commercial Receivers Association (CRA) is growing its footprint to include Texas and in doing so, has named Howard Marc Spector of Spector & Cox, PLLC as the State Director of Texas. Spector’s role within the state will be to continue to deliver on CRA’s mission to empower attorneys, receivers, bankers, and professional service firms in the commercial receiver space by providing important education, networking, and practical resources. Through CRA’s presence in Texas, the commercial receiver community will benefit locally, but it will also profit from the growing national scope of the association.

“Commercial receivership provides an avenue for companies, investors and creditors to work through the court system without having to undergo the bankruptcy process,” said Howard Marc Spector, Principal at Spector & Cox, PLLC. “I’m proud to be at the helm of the Commercial Receivers Association arm here in Texas. Whether it be from the perspective of an attorney, a turnaround professional, an accountant, a broker, a liquidator, or a banker, the CRA will provide resources to grow understanding and practice within our commercial receiver community.”

From its inception, the CRA has had a focused growth plan in place for the organization. “The State of Texas has become a leading player in the field of insolvency,” said Eric Peterson, Board President of the Commercial Receivers Association. “Building upon the experience and expertise in insolvency across the community while providing access to critical commercial receivership resources is a winning combination. Howard provides the CRA with an experienced, connected leader in the field and we feel privileged to work with him.”

As part of the CRA’s Texas entry, an event is slated for March 9th, 2022 in the Lone Star State. With an anticipated attendance by the region’s top insolvency attorneys, bankers, accountants and receivers, this event is part of CRA’s aggressive growth strategy across the country. The CRA recently hosted events in St. Louis and Kansas City and has events scheduled in Denver (April 19th, 2022), Ohio (June 16th, 2022), Maryland, Virginia, DC (August 9th, 2022), Oklahoma (October 18th, 2022), and Indiana (December 6th, 2022) with additional dates being scheduled for Rhode Island, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Wisconsin and Nevada for late 2022 and early 2023. Lastly, CRA is planning its inaugural conference for August 16th, 2022 (virtually) and its inaugural in-person conference for August 2023 with location details to be announced in the coming months.
