Intrum UK has undergone rapid expansion during 2023 as we’ve enhanced our partnerships with some of the UK’s most respected household names in the banking and credit provider sector, whilst quadrupling our headcount to 1600 colleagues; so, I’m pleased to have Sam onboard as we look to grow our business in the years ahead.
