After recruiting Ann Frank-Shantz in 2002, BEBdata became a reality. Ann’s experience with bankruptcy data started in 1994 while working in sales for Finance & Commerce (F&C), a local public record newspaper owned by Dolan Media. It was there that her in-depth understanding of Bankruptcies, Tax Liens and Judgments began. Her BK education was amplified by the purchase of Banko (aka PRR) in 1998, which was one of the largest compilers of Bankruptcy Data in the US. Hogan Information Services and ClickData were also acquired during her tenure and she was responsible for sales growth of the marketing arm of data sales. Dolan Media was acquired by LexisNexis in 2002 before Ann left F&C to join BEB. The accelerated growth of BEBdata products and services is a direct result of Ann’s vision, high quality standards and vast connections. A native to Minnesota, Ann graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato and has a son, Jacob.
