Burlington achieved ‘High Commended’ status in the Third Party Debt Collection Team category
Burlington Group, currently the UK’s only fully authorised multi-discipline debt collection business has achieved ‘Highly Commended’ status in Third Party Debt Collection Team category at the British Credit Awards 2015 hosted by the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM).
Founded in 2008, Burlington Group initially carved a successful niche in the collection of arrears in the consumer finance arena before moving into High Court Enforcement in 2011. In October 2014, Burlington Group became the first debt collection agency to become fully authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as a principal business. More recently, in January 2015, Burlington Group became the first debt collection business to be authorised as an MDP ABS by the Solicitors Regulations Authority (SRA) and has since launched a successful debt litigation department. The company is currently the only debt collection business fully authorised to provide services across Collections, Litigation and Enforcement.
The British Credit Awards, organised by Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM), is an annual event that celebrates the achievements of professionals in credit management. This year’s event featured 20 award categories and was held at The Brewery in London on February 11th 2015.
On hearing the news, Burlington’s Managing Director John Ingram, said, “I am delighted that Burlington Group has been awarded ‘High Commended’ status in the Third Party Debt Collection Team of the Year category. Our team are thrilled and extremely proud that their hard work and commitment to continual improvement have been recognised by the judges. I would like to thank the whole team at Burlington Group for their ongoing commitment to our industry and clients.”
