Today, Kevin Stevenson, PRA Group president and chief executive officer, was included in Inside Business’s 2020 Power List (The Next 50). The list ranks the top influential executives, elected officials, and community leaders in Hampton Roads, Virginia.
Stevenson was highlighted for growing PRA Group from a four-person company to a global industry leader. Inside Business also emphasized PRA Group’s philanthropic efforts:
“When president and CEO Kevin Stevenson of Norfolk-based debt collection company PRA Group co-founded the company in 1996, it was with four employees and the desire to do the job ethically and respectfully. Since then, the company has expanded to become one of the largest buyers of debt in the country, a global employer of thousands and a member of Nasdaq. The company is also philanthropic, supporting organizations such as the American Red Cross, the Elizabeth River Trail, Operation Smile and Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, among many others.”
“It is an honor to be included in the 2020 Power List with many inspirational and dedicated public servants and business leaders in Hampton Roads,” said Stevenson. “When we started PRA Group almost 25 years ago, our key founding principles were to treat customers fairly and to make meaningful contributions within the communities we operate in. We’ve kept this same focus even as we’ve expanded globally and are glad to be recognized for these values. We look forward to continuing to support the Hampton Roads community.”
