Hilton-Baird Collection Services' Senior Collections Advisor, Peter Hepburn, has been named as Commercial Debt Collector of the Year at the highly esteemed Credit Today Awards, which were held last night (Thursday 10 May 2012).
Peter won the award despite fierce competition from some illustrious and well respected competitors, including collections specialists from HM Revenue & Customs, Barclaycard and Moreton Smith. The award comes as a result of Peter's excellent track record at resolving disputed debts, especially at a time when SMEs need people they can trust and rely on in the UK's unpredictable economy.
Alex Hilton-Baird, Managing Director of Hilton-Baird Collection Services, said: "This award is testament to Peter being an indispensable member of the team. It is a great honour to have such a skilled commercial collector at Hilton-Baird. He thoroughly embraces our ethos and prides himself on being a dependable and trustworthy resource for our clients.
"Peter also played a major part in the company's successes of 2011, a year in which we took on more clients than ever before and collected a record sum of unpaid invoices. Within the company and across our client base we are all hugely appreciative of Peter's efforts and it is extremely satisfying to see his work recognised on this scale."
