Collaborating with Customers to Resolve Their Debt Since 1996.
We play a critical role in the consumer lending industry. Founded in 1996 by Steve Fredrickson and Kevin Stevenson, the vision for the company was to create a professional business in the nonperforming loan market. Specifically, the goal was to build a company that treated customers fairly and with respect, met high levels of compliance and reliability, and created rewarding careers for its employees.
The company went public on November 8, 2002, as Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc. and changed its name to PRA Group, Inc. in October of 2014.
