Leading debt collection and enforcement specialist Burlington Group is named as a finalist for ‘Third Party Debt Collection Team’ at The ICM British Credit Awards 2015.

Founded in 2008, Burlington Group carved a successful niche in the collection of arrears in the consumer finance arena before moving into High Court enforcement in 2011. More recently, in October 2014, Burlington became the first debt collection agency to become fully authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority as a ‘principal business’.

Every year, The Institute of Credit Management (ICM) runs an annual event – The ICM British Credit Awards – to recognise achievements of professionals in credit management. There are 20 award categories including Legal Team of the Year and Third Party Debt Collection Team of the Year, which Burlington has been shortlisted for. The 2015 award ceremony is to be held at The Brewery in London on 11th February.

John Ingram, Managing Director at Burlington Group, said, “I am thrilled that Burlington has been shortlisted for Third Party Debt Collection Team of the Year. The team have worked very hard over the past 12 months and I am delighted that our achievements have been recognised by respected industry stakeholders.

“We are proud to have been selected as a finalist in the competition and, whatever the outcome, we will continue to innovate, embrace change and remain committed to compliance.”
