Heightened demand for professional debt collection and recovery services has seen Professional Recovery Services move into the Victorian market with a new office opening in Melbourne this month.
Professional Recovery Services, a subsidiary business of national law firm Rostron Carlyle Lawyers, has been successfully operating in the Brisbane and Sydney market for a number of years.
Managing Director, Stewart Wilkinson, said recent demand from clients south of the border has resulted in the opening of a dedicated Victorian office in Bourke Street, Docklands.
“Professional Recovery Services has been providing commercial and private clients with a range of debt recovery services for many years now. With the business continuing to grow, particularly across Victoria we will now have a dedicated team to service our clients out of Melbourne,” Mr Wilkinson said.
“Our senior management have spent several decades working in debt collection agencies and specialist law firms in the debt collection industry. Using this wealth of experience, we have identified the best practice to deliver successful results to our clients.”
“This push into Melbourne will enable our clients to directly access our broad range of services. Our team in Melbourne will be supported by the Professional Recovery Services teams in both Sydney and Brisbane.”
Professional Recovery Services Melbourne office will be headed by Tom Torpy, who has more 30 years’ experience across a number of management roles within the debt recovery industry.
Prior to joining the collection industry, Tom was the Deputy Registrar at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court based in the Civil Registry. In this role he administrated all civil legal actions including all debt collection matters. Tom’s role at the Magistrates’ Court, combined with his extensive collections experience has given him a practical working knowledge of the civil legal system from both the users and administrators perspectives.
Tom’s hands on approach and extensive experience in all facets of the collection industry, ensures that the Professional Recovery Services team will maximise your recoveries, with the focused objective to affect all recoveries in the shortest possible period.
Tom will be supported in his role by Professional Recovery Services Brisbane and Sydney Managing Director Stewart Wilkinson who has lead the business since 2014.
