Burlington Group joins forces with The Institute of Credit Management

Press Release – 9 September 2013

Leading debt collection and enforcement specialist Burlington Group is the latest corporate sponsor to engage with the Institute of Credit Management (ICM). The partnership is intended to increase awareness of High Court Enforcement techniques among members seeking to develop litigation and enforcement processes.

Founded in 2008, with private equity investment, Burlington Group has carved a successful niche in the collection of arrears in the consumer finance arena and now acts on behalf of some of the UK’s largest banks and finance providers. In 2011, Burlington was authorised by the Ministry of Justice to provide judgment enforcement services as High Court Enforcement Officers and has sought to diversify its operational capabilities. With experience and understanding of field debt recovery in both the commercial and consumer sectors, Burlington has ambitious plans for further growth.

Burlington has already planned to engage with the ICM on several events, including Masterclasses on Managing Change (Leeds, 10 October; London, 4 December) and the ICM Law Conference (London, 21 November).

Adam Wonnacott, Sales Director at Burlington Group, says we hope to engage with members to help develop their understanding of litigation and enforcement as a debt collection tool:

“Credit Managers are often reluctant to consider litigation as an option in the debt collection process; fearing excessive legal costs, protracted court cases and unenforceable judgments. Reality can be quite different and, where correctly managed, implementing litigation and enforcement techniques can be an indispensable method of prioritising debt.”

Burlington Group’s Managing Director, John Ingram, adds: “We are delighted to partner with the ICM and we look forward to forging an enduring relationship with the Institute and its members.”
