    GREENVILLE, S.C., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Erwin-Penland Inc. announces the
 addition of Resurgent Capital Services to its public relations' client roster.
     Resurgent, located in Greenville, S.C., began operations in August 1998
 and today operates as a nationwide specialized buyer of distressed consumer
 debt, which includes Chapter 13 bankruptcies, high loan-to-value mortgages and
 unsecured credit card debts.  In less than three years, Resurgent has become a
 leader in the industry, closing on acquisitions of distressed consumer debt
 totaling more than $2.1 billion.
     As Resurgent's public relations firm, Erwin-Penland will assist the
 company in strategic development and execution of a Southeast campaign.  It
 will work to position Resurgent as an employer-of-choice, as well as assist in
 the building of positive name recognition.
     "I was impressed with the Erwin-Penland team," said Tim Grant, president
 of Resurgent Capital Services.  "They understand the negative connotations
 within the collection industry and we anticipate through this partnership they
 will assist us in clarifying the difference in what we do at Resurgent,
 compared to other recovery operations."
     "Just like Resurgent, Erwin-Penland understands the importance of
 cultivating relationships," said president of Erwin-Penland, Joe Erwin.
 "We're looking forward to executing a strategic public relations program that
 leverages Resurgent's profile as a prospective employer and a lucrative
 business in the Southeast."
