Michael J. Sigal, President

 

Michael J. Sigal was raised and educated in the San Gabriel Valley. 

In 1966, Mr.  Sigal began his experience in the collection service industry working for a collection agency, Credit Research Corporation (CRC).  While working at CRC, he paid close attention to the overall general operations of the collection business, and gained a wealth of knowledge in the legal and client services areas within the firm.  Within four years he became a principal shareholder and Vice President/Collection Manager of the company for 10 years.

In March of 1976, Mr. Sigal joined California Business Bureau, Inc. (CBB), and in that same year, CBB was incorporated with Mr. Sigal as President, and in 1979 became the sole owner and stockholder.  As President of CBB, Mr. Sigal oversees all areas of Corporate Management, directs the Sales and Marketing Division, Business Development, and Client Relations by providing guidance, direction and continued motivation and support.  Under his management and direction, CBB continues to experience tremendous growth, while at the same time offering stability and loyalty to both clientele and employees.  He credits much of the success of CBB by surrounding himself with very  bright, motivated and experienced professionals who share in his vision in making CBB one of the most successful independent healthcare accounts receivable management and recovery service providers in the country.

During the past 35 years, Mr. Sigal’s healthcare affiliations include a variety of healthcare associations (listed below).  He served as Chairman on many committees and boards and has received many appreciation awards for his dedication, support, and contribution of time.

In addition to his service to the healthcare industry associations, Mr. Sigal has also served on many state, professional and community associations.  He served as a member of the Board of Governors and the Legal and Legislative Council for the California Association of Collectors, President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the California Association of Collectors, and as a member of the National Panel of Consumer Arbitrators.

 

Mr. Sigal also provides a unique service to his clients and colleagues. He has participated in many seminars and lectures in order to enhance a greater understanding of the key issues related to the credit/collection and healthcare industry. He appeared on the David Horowitz’ Consumer Buy Line television show as an arbitrator for the Better Business Bureau, and on radio talk shows taking calls from the radio audience regarding collection practices of collection agencies.  He also appeared on Lifetime, a cable television show, as a representative of CBB. The segment on Lifetime focused on the daily operations of a collection agency and how they impact the patients they are in contact with.

His vision of a collection agency providing superior service with optimum performance has come to fruition with California Business Bureau, Inc. The company’s solid reputation in the healthcare/collection industry, accompanied by his long-standing business relationships, is directly responsible for the success that CBB has achieved over the past 35 years.
