Ro Royall-Executive Vice President
A Graduate from the University of Texas with a degree in Advertising; I started my career working for TRW Information services which was later acquired by Experian. My family has owned and operated Business Extension Bureau (BEB) of Texas since 1949, a multi-channel marketing production operation and our parent company. I joined the family business in 1995 and learned the business from the ground floor. My marketing experience includes direct mail, printing (digital, offset and wideformat) and web based communications coupled with my understanding of data helped to give me the vision of BEBdata.
Ann Frank-Vice President
Wouldn’t you say most people in the “list” industry learn the industry and then learn the lists they sell? Ok, well I was the complete opposite! In 1994 I found myself starting a new sales job at a company called Finance & Commerce (F&C), which was a local public record newspaper. Without making this story long, boring and drawn out…lets just say, that was the start of learning a lot about Bankruptcies, Tax Liens, Judgments and so on. The owner of F&C purchased a company called Banko (aka PRR) in 1998, which was one of the largest compilers of Bankruptcy Data in the US. Next we acquired Hogan Information Services and lastly, ClickData. Since most of the companies we acquired focused on the “credit & collection” side of the business. I was given the opportunity to develop the “list or marketing” side of the company. So there you have it…are you asleep yet? The story ends like this…in 2002 I was offered a great opportunity at Business Extension Bureau and have been here ever since!
