|Andrew Bartle, co-founder of Lowell Group, to leave later this year.|
|Thursday, 02 February 2017|
Co-founder of Lowell, one of the UK’s leading debt purchase and recovery organisations and part of GFKL Lowell Group*, Andrew has announced his decision to leave the Group later this year to develop new ventures.
Having been a key figure in the industry for almost fifteen years, and a keen supporter of the Credit Services Association, Andrew will be hugely missed not just by his immediate colleagues at Lowell, but by everyone with whom he has worked.
The news comes shortly after Andrew was honoured alongside co-founder James Cornell, with Credit Strategy’s Collections & Customer Service (CCS) award, for their work as pioneers in the credit management sector.
Commenting James said: “Andrew and I have worked together for many, many years. As co-founders, we’ve been brothers in the creation and development of Lowell, and so today really is the end of an era. Lowell simply wouldn’t be the company it is today without Andrew and he will be hugely missed on both a personal and professional level. We wish Andrew every success in the future as he focuses on a diverse range of start-up business and projects.
Andrew said: “The decision to leave Lowell has been an incredibly hard one. When James and I established Lowell, we were full of ambitious ideas, but the superb team and successful organisation we’ve created today far surpasses those early plans and expectations. We are both immensely proud of the company we’ve created with the support of many colleagues and clients along the way. I leave Lowell and the industry with many fond memories and friends, both of which I cherish. I look forward to watching Lowell’s success continue in the years to come and to seeing the wider industry go from strength to strength.”
Succession planning is well underway and Andrew will remain in post until a suitable replacement is found to ensure a smooth transition.
