Larz Soper, a graduate of Regents College, possesses over 20 years experience in the credit and collections field. While working for an agency, he developed and implemented a new credit and collection product that assisted banks with large account portfolios in receivership.
Larz joined ARI Global in 2014, bringing a wealth of trade credit knowledge and experience with him. He deeply values accessibility and responsiveness to his clients, prioritizing strong communication at all times. He uses a consultative approach asking questions about clients’ and prospects’ business operations and goals to understand their business through their eyes. Larz loves strategizing about sales growth or resolving issues with clients. He finds it extremely rewarding to become a client’s trusted advisor, being asked to assist in resolving issues or challenges in their business. Additionally, Larz sees himself as an integral part of where lending and credit insurance intersect. Lenders are encouraged to reach out if they are working on challenging deals and trying to push a term sheet over the finish line.
Seeking to emphasize partnership from the beginning, Larz schedules an introductory 15-minute phone call with those interested in credit insurance. This approach gains an initial understanding of their business’s needs and determines if moving forward is beneficial to both parties.
Larz lives in Apex, North Carolina, with his wife and children.
