The American Bankruptcy Institute has tapped its general counsel and deputy executive director to step up and serve as executive director of the organization, which has more than 12,000 members.  

Amy Quackenboss was appointed as the ABI’s first general in 2012, two years after she was hired as deputy executive director. She said she will continue to serve as the organization’s top lawyer after she takes over as executive director Jan. 1, ”until we have further conversations about the general counsel position with the ABI executive committee.”
