Intellaegis, which does business as masterQueue, announced on Wednesday that it has signed a consulting agreement with former Santander Consumer USA senior vice president and director of business control and risk management Kelli Edmonds.

One of the 2020 Women in Auto Finance honorees, Edmonds joins a strategic team that Intellaegis has built over the years that consists of experts whose deep industry knowledge helped propel Intellaegis’ recent growth. That team includes former Core Logic co-founder and chief executive Steve Schroeder, former Ally executive Bill Ploog, and Intellaegis’ current chief operating officer Lance Suder.

“Our strategic consultants complement our experienced staff of industry veterans. They have all been key pieces in helping Intellaegis continue to build masterQueue into one of the leading SaaS platforms in the risk management aspect of the fintech space,” Suder said in a news release.

Edmonds brings nearly 35 years of experience in her prior roles, which also includes being a director over bankruptcy and recovery at Hyundai Capital, and as the vice president at Chase Bank who was responsible for $1.3 billion in auto and student loan debt managed by an internal staff, and an outsourced network of collection agencies and law firms.

Edmonds started her career as a collector and team lead for 10 years at Sallie Mae, and then was a process improvement manager at GE Capital, where she was first introduced to the debt recovery vertical. From there she became a vice president in product strategy over debt recovery at Citi, where she managed $6 billion in annual outsourced debt amongst 30 nationwide vendors.

“Kelli is as knowledgeable and well respected as anyone in the debt recovery space, whether you’re collecting the debt in-house or through third-party vendors” Intellaegis founder and CEO John Lewis said.

“As we’re seeing more lenders using masterQueue to internalize deficiency collections while complimenting their existing outsource network of third-party vendors who can also utilize masterQueue, we’re excited to turn Kelli loose to help our team continue to innovate masterQueue as the leader in skip tracing and debt recovery software,” Lewis continued.

Suder added, “When all the data, calling, compliance and security transpires in a single-tenant environment shared by lenders and their vendors, it reduces cost and creates a more secure and efficient process for everyone”.

Edmonds recently left her position at Santander to form Kota Business Solutions, following in the entrepreneurial footsteps of her parents and brother.

“I am very excited to partner with this team of industry veterans in an entrepreneurial environment that focuses on innovation to improve process management through technology,” she said.
