Maes responses only sort of clear up questions on career history, resume
Responding to questions raised Wednesday by the Colorado Independent, GOP candidate for governor Dan Maes said that the resume posted at his campaign website is out of date and that he is no longer vice-president of sales at Advantage Credit Bureau of Fargo, North Dakota, the company he says purchased his own credit-reporting business in 2008.
“I discontinued that relationship in February of 2009,” he said. He added that it was “odd” that people at the company say they have never heard of him.
The Colorado Independent has made numerous calls to Advantage Credit and been told by several people there, at least one of whom worked there when Maes reportedly joined the firm, that they had never heard of Dan Maes. Advantage Credit Owner Mary Campell has not responded to multiple voicemails and an email.
As for allegations that he took customer lists with him to use in starting his own business when he resigned in 2005 from Advantage Credit in Evergreen (no connection with Advantage Credit in North Dakota), Maes said he did not take customer lists with him.
“I did call on their customers, though. They were my customers as well,” he said.
