FORT WORTH, TX – APRIL 18, 2019 – Digital Recognition Network (DRN) today presented its annual awards to its top affiliates at its appreciation dinner during the 2019 North American Repossessors Summit.

“We are honored and humbled to recognize this year’s affiliate award winners,” said Andy Cameron, senior vice president of FinTech, DRN. “Our affiliates serve as profiles in excellence within the repossession industry, and our award winners literally go the ‘extra mile’ to provide the license plate scans that serve as the backbone of our organization.”

This year, two affiliates – Associates Asset Recovery and Specialized Towing and Transportation, Inc. – tied for the National Affiliate of the Year Award, which recognizes excellence in repossession operations and performance throughout the prior year.
