Growing Numbers. Tulsa-based debt collection firm CFS II is ramping up operations and planning to hire 40 new employees each month for the next several months to keep up with business growth.
Total employment at CFS II is approaching 200 people, up dramatically from the eight employees it opened with in July 2010. This past July the company expanded its lease to 52,000 square feet at the CityPlex Towers, the same office complex where Bill Bartmann grew Commercial Financial Services into a 3,900-employee company and became one of the richest people in the U.S. during the 1990s.
In August, the parent company of CFS II was named one of the fastest growing companies in America by Inc. Magazine. Bartmann's company was named the 234th fastest-growing company in 2010 and Bartmann's Commercial Financial Services won the award four times previously. CFS was No. 437 in 1995, No. 37 in 1996, No. 8 in 1997 and No. 6 in 1998.For more information visit cfstwo.com.
