SOUTH BEND - South Bend-based Receive Revenue Recovery has selected Jessica Crawford as chief executive officer. Crawford has been with the collections agency since 2003 and most recently served as vice president of operations.

The company says Crawford led the transition to new ownership and a rebranding effort. Crawford says the company is looking to add new employees as the business expands, though specific numbers were not released.

"Jessica did a great job leading a complicated transition and company rebrand that required a keen understanding of the business and the industry," said Ben Norris, interim CEO of Receive Recovery. "She is the best person to lead Receive through its next growth stage, and I along with the Receive Board of Directors, look forward to working with her into the future."

In February 2017, Receive, then known as SSI Group, was acquired by South Bend-based private equity firm Norris Equity Partners. Receive says Crawford will lead the company as it relocates to a new corporate headquarters in downtown South Bend next year.
