During the last year, Ms. Anderson has also served as the president of the Unclaimed Property Professionals Organization, the leading trade organization for the unclaimed property field.

“First and foremost, UPRR wants to congratulate Karen on her successful term as President of UPPO,” said Jennifer Borden, UPRR’s executive vice president and general counsel. “Her contributions to UPPO significantly elevated issues related to unclaimed property, something that will be on display later this month at the annual UPPO conference, which will be the largest ever unclaimed property conference of its kind. Karen’s dedication to the unclaimed property community is immeasurable.
“At the same time, we are pleased Karen is now available to oversee our Advisory Services Group, particularly since UPRR will be introducing several new solutions to its clients at the end of the first quarter. These new tools will complement Karen’s experience, which spans nearly three decades. Throughout, Karen has been a strong advocate for the rights of the holder, while balancing excellent relationships with state administrators. Her efforts insure the rights of the holder are protected in the ever-changing world of unclaimed property.”
Ms. Anderson’s background includes service as a policy adviser to a former Illinois Governor, serving as the Illinois’ Unclaimed Property Administrator, and the first Director of the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators.
During Ms. Anderson’s tenure as UPPO President, the organization made great strides, including significant enhancements to member services, advancements in UPPO’s advocacy program and the creation of substantive online educational content available to members.
As a respected member of the unclaimed property community, Anderson has won many industry awards and has been recognized by many organizations for her insightful contributions.
