Underscoring Experian’s goal to help consumers and be an advocate for credit education, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) last week awarded Victor Nichols, CEO of Experian North America its “Making the Difference” award from at their Annual Leaders Conference in Denver.
This prestigious award is presented to organizations that have made significant contributions to assisting consumers with financial literacy, awareness and education, furthering the NFCC’s mission, visions and programs through a national presence.
Mr. Nichols attended the conference to accept the award and to speak to the attendees about Experian’s vision and commitment to financial literacy and consumer empowerment.
“I am proud that Experian was recognized for the second year in a row with this award, and I commend our team for their involvement and dedication in making a positive difference in consumers’ financial lives,” said Nichols. “We understand what an impact education has in helping consumers manage their financial lives, and we will continue to make financial literacy a priority along with our commitment to always put the consumer first.”
In presenting Mr. Nichols the award, Gail Cunningham, vice president of membership and public relations at the NFCC, commented: “The NFCC is pleased to honor Experian’s Victor Nichols with the 2013 Making the Difference Partner award and to acknowledge the strength and power that our relationship provides to consumers. Experian’s commitment to consumer education aligns with the NFCC’s mission of creating a national culture of financial responsibility, making Experian an obvious choice for this award.”
Also, representing Experian at the conference this year was Maxine Sweet, vice president of public education and last year’s Making the Difference award recipient, along with Rod Griffin, director of public education. The two experts hosted the “Being a Credit Ambassador” workshop at the conference for NFCC educators and counselors. The session included an in-depth look at how to guide consumers in building and restoring their credit, fraud prevention and learning to manage their credit and debt.
