A global leader in the nonperforming loan industry
In 1996, Steve Fredrickson and Kevin Stevenson had a vision for a professional business in the nonperforming loan industry. With four employees in Norfolk, Virginia, they set out to found a company that would do things differently. Things like helping improve financial futures by taking a customer-first approach, providing affordable and flexible payment options, meeting high levels of compliance and reliability, and creating rewarding careers for employees. They took Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc. public in November 2002 and changed the parent company name to PRA Group, Inc. in October 2014. Today, PRA Group has grown to become a global leader in the nonperforming loan industry with operations and thousands of employees around the world. Nearly three decades since our founding, we remain focused on doing things the right way, for the right reasons, for the long term.
