ACA International member Robert Eugene Barrett, president of Central Portfolio Control, Inc., in Minnetonka, Minnesota, passed away Oct. 11, 2019. Barrett, 51, began his career as a collections agent with CPC in Eden Prairie in August 2002 when the company employed five people. With his tremendous work ethic and dedication to the team, Barrett played a key role in helping build the company to the thriving, 120-employee firm that it is today.
