Pierce and Associates has promoted two of its own to management positions. Dave Beck, who previously served as director of information services, has been promoted to the position of chief information officer. Eric Alvine, who has served as one of the firm’s litigation attorneys since 2012, has been promoted to the position of director of foreclosure.
In his new position, Beck (pictured above) will be managing information systems operations and support, “as well as the continued development and delivery of next generation technology to the firm,” the firm said in a release.
“I’m very excited to welcome Dave to the senior executive team, to stay competitive in this industry, we are charged with constant operational review to identify opportunities…to incorporate technology to be more efficient,” Pam Murphy, chief operating officer, said. “Dave and his team make what could be a grueling process quite a pleasure.”
Prior to joining the firm in 2012, Beck was the global manager of information security at Dentons US.
“Our goal…is to be both transformational and transparent,” Beck said. “The foundations of a next generation platform are being built. Over the next year, we will be concentrating our efforts on completing that platform and leveraging it to take the firm to new heights.”
In his new position, Alvine (pictured below) will be managing the firm’s foreclosure team.
“Eric’s legal background will lend nicely to foreclosure operations, while his eagerness to teach and industry knowledge is perfectly suited for our needs,” Murphy said. “In the next several months, we plan a strong focus on staff training to provide all staff well-rounded knowledge of the entire foreclosure process. We feel this will give us a competitive edge over other large foreclosure firms.”
Alvine said that his goal is to promote effective and fundamentally sound operating procedures throughout his team.
“Ultimately, I believe that education, training, and departmental understanding will keep Pierce & Associates at the forefront of the foreclosure industry,” Alvine said.
