Equiant, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based receivables servicing provider, has named Mike Wright as director of information technology, positioning the company to continue its recent advances in information security and digital data management.
“Mike has the right blend of management ability and knowledge of cutting edge technologies,” Don Y. Kim, Equiant’s chief information officer. “These skills will enable him to lead Equiant’s systems further into the cloud and other areas that our clients require for today’s competitive business environment.”
Frank Morrisroe, president, also praised the move. “Mike has been a great contributor to Equiant’s mission of exceeding client expectations,” he says. “His response to clients requests is always ‘how can we make this possible?’ instead of no. He’s a perfect fit with Equiant’s corporate culture.”
Wright has been with Equiant since 2005, most recently as manager of web development. He has a B.S. in computer science from Arizona State University.
Equiant has recently invested heavily in improving both functionality and security for its clients. The company now stores all customer data at a Tier IV Gold data center, considered the most secure facility in the United States, and also has the technology to facilitate electronic processing of documents and loan servicing. Additionally, Equiant’s new Platform as a Service (PaaS) model allows clients to service their accounts in-house using the industry’s most advanced technology.
