Americollect, Inc. is Among America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000 for Second Consecutive Year

MANITOWOC, Wis., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Americollect, Inc. will again be included in the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is considered a high honor.  Past companies that made the list include Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Go Daddy, Oracle, and UnderArmour.



Americollect contributes its growth to several factors. First, their loyal clients, whose referrals have enabled Americollect's revenue to grow 617% since 1999.  In 2009, Americollect recovered almost 14 million dollars for their clients, up from not even 2 million in 1999.  Second, Americollect's Win-Win Collections concept, this creates consumer buy-in and reduces complaints.  In fact, complaints have been almost non-existent with Americollect.  Each year they track their complaints with the Federal Trade Commission (5 complaints ) and WI Dept of Financial Institutions (4 complaints). President and CEO, Kenlyn Gretz encourages his collectors to treat the consumer as if they were a brother or sister.  He also believes most of the consumers are good people, just going through a tough time.  The Win-Win approach also delivers collection RECOVERY percentages well above the industry average.  Additionally Americollect places an extremely high level of importance on client questions and needs.  They consider their customer service second to none. Thank you to our clients for all their support of Americollect as we have continued our growth!
