Debt collection agency wins top award

Hilton-Baird Collection Services has been voted Third Party Debt Collection Team of the Year for the second year running at the credit industry’s flagship awards evening.

The British Credit Awards, which are held by the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) and recognise outstanding performance and innovation across the industry, were held last Thursday (7th February) at the Royal Lancaster, London.

The commercial debt collection agency triumphed following a record-breaking year, in which they recovered more in current, aged and disputed debt than ever before in the company’s 17-year history.

The ceremony was hosted by comedian Zoe Lyons, with the award presented to company director Ian Tramaseur.

Hilton-Baird Collection Services helps businesses to overcome the challenges of late payment by providing a range of debt recovery and outsourced credit control services.

Alex Hilton-Baird, Managing Director of Hilton-Baird Collection Services, commented: “We’re incredibly proud to have won this top award for the second successive year.

“The CICM is very much the benchmark for the industry, helping to shape government policy and providing valuable training to credit controllers across the country, so for our team to be recognised at their national awards ceremony once again is enormously gratifying.

“Getting paid on time isn’t getting any easier for businesses, so we’re pleased to provide support to those who lack either the resource or expertise and help them to keep their cash flowing throughout these uncertain times.”
