Perch Group, one of the UK’s fastest growing debt purchase and resolution firms, has appointed former Barclays Commercial Manager Louise McAleer as Client Operations Manager.

Louise joins Perch Group’s client team headed up by Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Bartle, the original founder of Lowell Financial. She will report into Origination Director Rob Oxley and work closely with Business Development Managers Marco Pace and Dayle Hutchinson, all of whom have many years’ experience in the collections and credit management arena.

As someone from a banking background, having gained experience in areas including debt sales and governance at Barclays, Louise will be tasked with managing Perch Group’s growing portfolio of top-tier lender clients.

Rob Oxley comments:

“Louise is a fantastic addition to our team bringing a fresh perspective with the ability to think and communicate like a client and challenge ways of working to support good outcomes for our clients’ customers. She has hit the ground running and proven she is a great fit for not only the role but the business’ fast-paced culture.”

Louise adds:

“I feel like I’m joining the business at a really exciting stage in its evolution and it’s been fascinating to learn how it operates. Having worked for Barclays, I already have a strong understanding of what clients are looking for from their debt purchase and collections partners and I’m eager to be able to support Perch’s growing client base across all of our solutions”

Blackpool-headquartered Perch Group, which comprises debt purchaser Perch Capital, FCA-regulated debt resolution agency ACI, SRA-regulated TM Legal Services, and field services business Verify, has recently opened two new offices to accommodate its growing team across the North of England and nationally. Its new Yorkshire premises is within the Broughton Hall Business Park on the outskirts of Skipton, offering employees a rural but still accessible alternative setting to its new City Tower office in Manchester.
