Jerry Kaufman has been named president of Atlanta-based Nationwide Credit Inc., a unit of First Data Corp.
Mr. Kaufman, 57, had been executive vice president for marketing, sales, and service for Nationwide. He succeeds Dennis C. Cunningham, who resigned to pursue other business interests, First Data said.
Nationwide became a part of First Data when it merged with Nationwide's parent, First Financial Management Corp., last October.
Mr. Kaufman will report to Paul R. Garcia, group president of First Data Issuing Services. He will oversee the delivery of Nationwide's financial recovery services and receivables management to more than 200 companies nationally.
