Rent-A-Center Transforms to Asset Protection and Reorganizes Field Team

Rent-A-Center's Loss Prevention department has rebranded to the Asset Protection department, better aligning their role with the direction of the organization.

"The Asset Protection team will continue to contribute to the success of the organization through our traditional role of profit improvement," says Jim Carr, Senior Director - Global Asset Protection for Rent-a-Center. "Additionally, we will now contribute in other areas of the business such as supply chain, crisis management, compliance and global travel safety. We are taking a broader approach to the business, looking at opportunities to leverage data, technology and remote capabilities. While the field continues taking on additional responsibility, we also increased the compensation of 88% of our team."

Rent-a-Canter's Asset Protection department has also restructured, introducing a shared service program that aligns their current field-based resources with both brands of their business. Their U.S. and Canada field organization has been restructured into three zones, each led by a Senior Zone Asset Protection Manager.
Jim Carr announces the following promotions to Senior Zone Asset Protection Manager:
