The voice of debt collection, literally

Thursday, March 12, 2009

In every economic downturn there are industries that prove to be recession proof. And aside from business models that avoid losses in profits, are the ones that do better in tough economic times. Take debt collection work and the actual people who do voice over work for debt collection companies; an occupation that is growing.

Joining The Takeaway are two debt collection voice over artists who use their pipes to get debtors to fork over their money. Donna Mack is a freelance voice over artist and Gerry Burke works for CSG systems.

"I can only get so mean, though, because like I said, they hire me to be the compassionate, businesslike voice."
— Voice-over artist Donna Mac, on being the voice of debt collection agencies
