Every credit is unique and requires a tailored remedy to ensure the best outcome for


Following the review and recommendations, Proactive is qualified and capable of effectuating the desired outcome through a “boots on the ground approach” and if needed the engagement of a proven network of service providers. This provides great value for creditors who may not have offices where the borrower and/or collateral is located. Value is also added when a borrower can work face to face with a Proactive representative whom is able to become intimately familiar with the borrowers’ operation, collateral, stresses, and personality. Proactive works effectively with debtors in all situations and customizes the approach accordingly. If a creditor should require Proactive to work directly with the borrower value is immediately added as it shows the creditor to be aware and engaged with the situation. Proactive is happy to work “side by side” with creditor representatives when possible and maintain healthy relationships with the borrowers.


Our primary goal is for you to maintain your customers and loan balances and avoid:

  • Unnecessary expenses
  • Loan Losses
  • Downgrading loans
  • TDR’s
  • Increased loss reserves

Our secondary goal is to obtain full repayment of debts when an exit strategy is necessary.

Our tertiary goal is to minimize any unavoidable losses to the creditor.
