Fast growing Lowell Group, a leading UK debt purchasing and contingent collections group, has appointed a new Managing Director to head up the Interlaken Group, the company it acquired in May 2013.
Dominic Briggs, a qualified chartered accountant, brings a wealth of experience gained from working in the telecommunications industry and in a major accounting practice.
Dominic joins from BT Group, where he has held a number of senior operational and finance roles. In his most recent role as Head of Volume Collections, Dominic led a team of 400 across four UK sites and off-shore operations.
As Managing Director of Interlaken Group, Dominic will be responsible for the successful development of the Group’s two contingent collections businesses, Fredrickson International and SRJ, which together employ around 300 team members across three operating sites in Surrey. He will also sit on Lowell Group’s Executive Board.
Commenting on Dominic’s appointment Lowell Group’s Chief Executive Officer James Cornell, said, “Since embarking on our partnership with Interlaken Group we have been searching for a candidate who will work closely with our existing talented team to develop a strategy which will see Interlaken Group continue to thrive as a debt collection agency, whilst also start to realise some of the significant benefits and growth potential made possible by the creation of our new wider Lowell Group.
“Dominic fits the bill perfectly. What’s more, having worked with Interlaken in a client capacity and met some members of our team, he has experienced their excellent service first hand and recognises the many strengths of the business. He also brings a unique insight of seeing things from both sides of the relationship.”
Speaking about his new role, Dominic Briggs added, “I am really looking forward to working with the teams at Interlaken and Lowell Group and putting in place plans to grow, shape and develop the business. As a client, I have been impressed with Interlaken for some time and will be using that insight to ensure we continue to deliver what our clients want in future.”
