Montana Consumer Advocate Wins National Award

Marcus Meyer, a Consumer Protection Investigator with the Montana Office of Consumer Protection, recently received the Outstanding Consumer Protection Award from the National Association of Consumer Protection Investigators (NACPI).

The award was presented to Meyer last month at the NACPI conference in Little Rock, Arkansas. Meyer was honored by NACPI for his accomplishments in striving to go above and beyond to meet or exceed a consumer’s expectations putting their needs first, no matter what the situation.

Attorney General Tim Fox said, “Investigators like Marcus, along the attorneys and support personnel in our Office of Consumer Protection, have had great success in helping Montanans who’ve been scammed, as well as helping countless others avoid the same scenarios. I’m very proud of our consumer protection team and the work they do.”

“Consumers frequently applaud the efforts Marcus has put forth on their behalf, whether the case is complex or very straightforward,” said Office of Consumer Protection Chief Ed Eck. “If the complaint is within the scope of Montana law, Marcus tenaciously seeks a reasonable solution to the consumer’s problem. For example, he recently recovered money for a number of Montanans who had been sold defective automobile parts that jeopardized their safety.”

In receiving the award, Meyer said, “I was surprised and very honored to be recognized. The Montana Office of Consumer Protection works hard to protect Montana consumers, and I feel very fortunate being a part of the Montana Department of Justice for the past two years.”

Meyer is a Helena native and has a bachelor’s degree in business administration/marketing from Carroll College. He has been employed by the State of Montana for five years.
