Carlsbad-based Action-sports Service Provider Network (pronounced “aspen”) is an apparel and action-sports industry resource.  The membership of ASPN includes talented business professionals from multiple fields who provide business advice, consulting, and other services to individuals and businesses in the apparel and action-sports industry.

As Business Development Manager at CRF Solutions, Jason Stine combines his years of finance and management experience with his agency’s vast operational resources to educate and maximize accounts receivable recoveries for his clients. Credit departments in smaller organizations all the way up to Fortune 500 companies have benefited from CRF Solutions’ first party call and letter series support as well as their complete third party collections and litigation services. Maximizing cash flow and minimizing bad debt is a critical element to every successful business plan.  CRF Solutions specializes in working with outdoor, apparel and action-sports clients.

Founded by Michael Orlando of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton, LLP, Doug Works of CBRE, Travis Fago of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Orion Barca of Barca Company, Action-sports Service Provider Network’s members include these and other professionals in the fields of accounting, commercial real estate, financial advising, global market development, insurance, law, lending, marketing, market research and now receivables solutions.

“I am stoked to join ASPN,” said Jason.  “Everyone in the organization is the best in their respective fields and care about the industry that we all serve.”             

Orion Barca, CPA, founding member of ASPN and Principal of Barca Company said, “Jason is a tremendous asset to ASPN with the collections knowledge that he brings to the group.  All companies from start-ups to multi-billion dollar market leaders have collections problems and it is one area where knowledge is power if you want to maximize your chances to collect your receivables.”

ASPN will be selectively adding a limited number of additional business professionals to its membership to cover specialties not already covered by the current membership.
