Credit Today Debt Collection Awards 2011 has announced that STA is a finalist in its Consumer Debt Collection Agency of the Year under £2M turnover category. The awards, now in their fifth year, are designed to celebrate the achievements of companies and professionals working in the debt collection, enforcement, debt purchase and tracing sectors. The winner will be announced on 9th November 2011 at The Palace Hotel in Manchester, with over 500 credit professionals expected to attend.

STA’s consumer collections division has been built around its student collections for universities where it collects for 74 or 55% of the 133 members of Universities UK. This work has led to investment in a power-dialler; extended 9 a.m. through 9 p.m. opening hours, email encryption, call recording and University Discussion Forums.

Business Development Director Neill MacKinnon says: “It’s a great honour to be a finalist in these prestigious awards and a real credit to our team of dedicated collectors. I’m fortunate to work closely with the universities who are always open to new initiatives that can increase cash collected and drive down costs. We are grateful to them that our partnership has been recognised in this way.”
