FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TRS President Brian Compton Selected for a Silver Stevie Award

Tax Resolution Services' president is honored in the coveted Executive of the Year - Accounting, Banking, and Financial Services category on June 18, 2012.

Encino, CA - Over the past year, the tax industry as a whole - and the tax debt resolution segment of the industry in particular - has been under the microscope, and as a result it has taken a beating by much of the news media. However, you certainly wouldn't know it by looking at the way things are going for the Los Angeles-based Tax Resolution Services, Co. (TRS). On Monday, June 18, TRS President Brian Compton was named the Silver Stevie Award recipient as Executive of the Year in the Accounting, Banking, and Financial Services category during the tenth annual American Business Awards' banquet at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations - public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

"This is a tremendous honor," said Compton. "There are so many deserving candidates for this award, and I am flattered to be recognized alongside all of these hard-working and talented executives. The Stevies are one of the most coveted awards in the business community, so I am grateful to accept this award."

In an era when many executives in the tax industry are making headlines for all the wrong reasons, Compton's achievement is especially notable. In the Executive of the Year - Accounting, Banking, and Financial Services category, not one of the other finalists works in the tax industry. Landing a Silver Stevie is a credit to Brian's leadership, expertise, and willingness to work on the front lines with the sales team he manages when the situation calls for it. He has a knack for knowing when to stay in the background - confident that the training programs he has helped to design and implement are effective - and when to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. Compton is also quick to acknowledge his colleagues.

"Although this is technically an individual award," Brian remarked, "there is no way I'd even be in the discussion for a Stevie without the dedication and hard work of the TRS sales team. They just soak up all the knowledge and strive daily to provide clients with the best guidance possible. We set the bar high around here, and this organization is a great example of how to do things the right way."

However, always the competitor, Brian vows to continue fine-tuning the engine as the country's financial landscape and the needs of American consumers evolve. "I'm going to enjoy this award now," said Brian, "but by no means does this signal that my work is done. On the contrary, it means its time to keep pushing forward."
