ICG 2017 Annual Meeting

The Ritz Carlton
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
June 18th – 20th, 2017

ICG was originally formed by Dennis Punches nearly five decades ago, in 1967, as Men of Ideas. As the CEO and Founder of Payco American, the largest collection agency in the world at the time, Dennis wanted to establish a group comprised of decision makers from the largest debt collection agencies in the world to meet once a year. They would get together to discuss the business and industry trends, and build camaraderie, getting to know one another on a personal and professional level. This continued for decades, and the original members were truly recognized as the market leaders.

Today, ICG consists of some recognized market leaders. Concerted efforts are now being made to expand the group’s presence to include ARM professionals in the U.S. and other credit economies across the globe.

Going forward, participants in ICG will include CEOs from the largest first and third-party collection agencies, collection law firms, and debt buying operations. In the U.S., participants will come from major market sectors including banking, telecom, healthcare, government, student loans and commercial. Outside of the U.S., the focus will be on the largest ARM companies in particular credit driven countries. Discussions will focus on the big issues that affect all collection professionals regardless of their location.

Jim Richards, CEO of Capio Partners, said, “I am excited about the changes we are making at ICG and believe they will reinforce the original mission of this elite group. We as a group believe that utilizing Mike Ginsberg and his organization will broaden our access to the best and largest industry leaders in the world today.”
