Jerry Ashton

Founder, Director of Education and Outreach

Jerry Ashton has more than 40 years’ experience in the credit and collections industry. In 1995, after almost 20 years in the industry, and dissatisfied with the way he saw debtors treated, he founded CFO Advisors, Inc., in New York City. At one point his specially trained teams from all over the U.S. serviced more than a half-billion dollars annually in receivables.

His clients included Johnson & Johnson, Hearst, Gannett, RR Donnelley, Snelling and Snelling, and Biosense Webster. Jerry is also the co-author of “The Patient, The Doctor, and the Bill Collector: A Medical Debt Survival Guide” which reveals the hidden truths behind the crushing medical debt affecting more than 64 million Americans.
