Perch Group bolsters industry-leading client team with new appointments

Published 9th May 2023

North-West based Perch Group, one of the UK’s fastest-growing debt purchase, collections, litigation and reconnection firms, has announced the appointment of Rob Oxley as Origination Director and Bronia O’Regan as Lead Implementation Manager.

Rob brings 13 years’ experience in senior client facing roles within the credit risk and collections industry to Perch Group. Four of those years were spent at TransUnion and six at Lowell, one of Europe’s largest credit management companies, where he was responsible for leading commercial activities across several sectors including retail, telecoms, utilities and financial services. He joins Marco Pace and Dayle Hutchinson in the business development team who have 33 and 8 years of debt purchase industry experience respectively.

Also formerly from Lowell, Bronia has almost 20 years’ experience, most recently as Director of Client Services at field services provider Engage. She will be responsible for managing Perch Group’s client portfolios post-sale.

Andrew Bartle, the original Founder of Lowell Financial Ltd and highly regarded as an industry innovator, also joined Perch Group as Chief Commercial Officer two years ago to head up the sales, data analytics and strategy functions. These new appointments support his vision for Perch Group to be able to service the full spectrum of debt types and sectors from mail order and financial services to utilities and telecoms. He says:

“With Rob and Bronia on board, along with the rest of the industry-leading team we have built, people are beginning to take notice of our innovative approach and solutions, with clients valuing our unique combination of experience and agility.

“At Perch Group, we’re not just a buyer that sees debt purchase as transactional: We build long-term partnerships as an extension of the creditors’ team, which is why it’s so important that we have the best people in the business. Whatever the size, type or complexity of portfolios or accounts, we’ve got the expertise to service them to the highest standards – and because of our entrepreneurial culture, we can make quick decisions, unpick any issues, and reduce the hassle for all involved, while maintaining the highest best practice principles as standard.”

Perch Group client, a credit card provider Debt Sale Manager, adds:

“We’ve been incredibly impressed with Perch Group’s offering as a one-stop-shop for all our debt resolution needs. While their highly experienced leadership team makes them a safe pair of hands, they are forward-thinking in their approach and not afraid to do things differently to get the job done. They tailor everything to our specific needs and have an in-depth understanding of our sector and customers.”
