Leading enforcement specialist Burlington Group wins Enforcement Team of the Year at the Debt Collection Awards 2014 for the second year running.

Burlington Group became authorised by the Ministry of Justice to provide judgment enforcement services in 2011 and earlier this year, Burlington became the first debt collection agency to become fully authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority as a ‘principal business’.

Managed by Credit Today, the Debt Collection Awards is an annual event that recognises achievements and ceaseless improvement of professionals in debt collection, enforcement, compliance and debt purchase.

The awards took place at The Midland Hotel in Manchester on the evening of 20th November 2014. Industry professionals competed for 11 categories for including Compliance Team of the Year, Best Customer Initiative and Enforcement Team of Year, the category Burlington won for the second consecutive year.

Burlington’s Managing Director, John Ingram, said he was delighted that Burlington had been recognised for its continuous improvement in its enforcements business.

“I am proud that we have won Enforcement Team of the Year for the second year running. This year our talented team have embraced the industry changes, particularly our Enforcements Team who have worked especially hard this year to adopt the new regulations and I am extremely pleased this has been recognised by the judges.

“I would like to thank our whole team for their efforts over the past 12 months. We could not have achieved this without the dedication and commitment the team have shown.”
