MMI Merger History

Over the years, we have strengthened our capacity and expanded our services by merging with regional and national consumer credit counseling service (CCCS) agencies across the country. These mergers not only elevated us to the position of industry leader, but deepened our experience with a legacy that dates back to 1958—when our oldest merger partner was founded.
