Democracy in South Africa brought with it the enormous challenges of mapping a new growth path for South Africa and so the debt collection industry was also transformed with the establishment of the Debt Collectors Act 114 of 1998.
Our Director, Mrs. Riana Ferreira, has more than 28 years of debt collection experience and has achieved the highest accolade by being appointed by the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development to serve as the only woman representing debt collectors on
the Council for Debt Collectors for about 13 years serving both on the Audit and Disciplinary Committees.
