Florida Association of Professional Process Servers
Bob Musser

2019 Distinguished Service Award

Lance Randall

In most cases, I’ve started out this presentation by giving you some background information on the recipient, building some suspense and weaving a picture of their life before process service. This year, we’re not going to do that. Our recipient didn’t have a life before process service.

Our recipient, a third generation process server, accompanied his father at work during his childhood, and worked at his father’s process service business before he was 18. In 1993 he was finally of legal age in Florida, got his license, and started serving papers. Eager to run his own business, he opened his own process serving company before his 20th birthday. Based in South Florida, he became involved in the Dade Association of Certified Process Servers and served that association in various jobs, including Vice President. Later in the 90’s, he became more active in FAPPS, and served in many capacities, including as a member of the Legislative Committee, as Secretary, and even four years as your FAPPS President.

He has also served in many capacities at the National level, including as a member of the NAPPS legislative and technology committees, the Chartered State Association Chair, and was elected to terms as Secretary and President. As President he was part of the delegation representing NAPPS at the International Federation of Trusted Third Parties, a first for NAPPS.

Throughout his career, he has always been a networker. He is a vendor member of the south Broward county Bar Association, NARCA, the debt collection group, and obtained accreditation with the Florida Bar to teach Continuing Education to attorneys on the subject of process service.

From the Award itself:

He has authored countless articles for NAPPS and CALSPRO on issues relating to process serving. You can always count on him to provide an important historical perspective on virtually any legislative matter.

For the 2019 FAPPS Distinguished Service Award, I present to you a man that I have known since he was a teenager, a man who grew up in our profession, a man who I have dined with, drank with, boated with, golfed with, but much more importantly, a man who has worked to keep private process serving a viable occupation at the local, state, national and even international levels for virtually his entire adult life.

I present to you my friend, Lance Randall.

From the Award itself:

Spirit of a Leader
A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent. Leaders, like eagles, don’t flock. You find them one at a time.

2019 FDSA
For your many years of service to private process servers, for your countless contributions that benefited so many members.

For the Committee,
Bob Musser, Chair, FAPPS Distinguished Service Award Committee
