Generally, a party seeking appointment of a receiver will nominate one, showing the nominee's qualifications and neutrality. Marketing yourself to attorneys who handle receivership matters is one way to be nominated.
Some courts maintain lists of pre-qualified receivers. Check with the clerk of your local court to see if it keeps a list of qualified receivers and how to apply. Once you are on the list, you will still need to bring yourself to the attention of attorneys who nominate receivers in their practice.
