A speaker at several NACM and FCIB events and a dedicated contributor throughout FCIB’s recruitment and online presence efforts, Patrick Spargur, ICCE, was the latest to join the list of FCIB Service Development and Growth Award winners.
Spargur, credit manager with Bally Technologies Inc., was honored at the 24th Annual FCIB Global Conference, held this month in Philadelphia. The award is designed to recognize the valuable contributions of volunteers are making to further grow and develop FCIB’s member services and to encourage more people to serve. For his part, Spargur has played an important role in FCIB’s LinkedIn groups, member recruitment and the FCIB website member discussion board, among other pursuits. FCIB Director of Business Development and Membership Ron Shepherd made sure to point out Spargur’s various charitable efforts during Global, including working with a group that serves Las Vegas residents badly affected by the city’s deep economic downturn and real estate bust.
“It is always great to receive recognition from your peers and those who you serve,” Spargur said. “FCIB is a very well-known and respected organization that has been instrumental in my career development. Their members and resources are invaluable to me as a credit professional.”
The last FCIB member to receive the Development and Growth Award on U.S. soil was John LaRocca, CICP, of Hitachi Data Systems Corp., in 2012.
