Kamerschen will be responsible for managing all legal and governmental affairs for Aaron's, including employment law, regulatory matters, intellectual property, litigation, vendor relationships, financings, acquisitions, and other general legal matters. As General Counsel, he will report directly to Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Ronald W. Allen.

"Robbie has a lengthy career in corporate governance and has been recognized as one of Georgia's leading attorneys," said Allen. "We're confident that his extensive experience in corporate legal counsel and regulatory affairs will be a tremendous asset to Aaron's."

In 2012, both the Fulton County Daily Report and Georgia Trend magazine recognized Kamerschen for his legal work.  The Fulton County Daily Report named Equifax's legal department, led by Kamerschen, the "Legal Department of the Year" and he was included in Georgia Trend's "Legal Elite" list.

Prior to joining Aaron's, Kamerschen served at Equifax since 2008 as the U.S. Chief Counsel, Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer. He was responsible for the management of the U.S. legal function, compliance, and governmental relations. Before that, he served as Vice President of Law and Public Policy at ChoicePoint. Earlier in his career, he was General Counsel to EzGov and practiced law in the Atlanta office of Troutman Sanders LLP. At Troutman Sanders, Kamerschen's practice focused on regulatory law and litigation.

Before attending law school, Kamerschen worked on Capitol Hill for U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (AL) and played minor league baseball in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. He is a graduate of Stanford University and an honors graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law.
