Paul Krause has been the Manager of Collections at NACM Business Credit Services since 2003.

Mark Kirkorsky obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona in 1982. He earned his J.D. from the California Western School of Law in 1985, and was admitted to practice in the states of Arizona and California that same year, and in 2014 was admitted to practice in Kansas. His practice areas initially focused on complex commercial real estate transactions, including financing and 1031 exchange transactions. In 2001, he began working in the area of commercial collections for several large food service, waste disposal and construction supply companies. From there, he formed an alliance with other experts in the area of collections and information technology to develop systems, technology, staffing and methods for a high volume collection practice which merges the best practices and benefits of a collection agency with that of a law firm to provide clients with a “one stop” approach to their collection needs. This approach grew into a law practice that handles both consumer and commercial collections on both a local and, in some cases, national level. Mark A. Kirkorsky, P.C. currently represents banks, credit unions, credit card issuers, and automobile finance companies on its consumer side, and also represents over 150 commercial clients primarily involved in the construction supply, large equipment rental, and fuel distribution industries.
