Members of International Credit Exchange (ICE) – the world’s leading, largest, and most compliant debt recovery partnership – are holding their Annual Conference in Amsterdam on October 22 & 23 to discuss their global business collaboration.
19th October 2018
ICE Operations Manager Hannah Barratt has organised the conference, including new wall plaques for Members’ offices.

This is the fourth ICE Annual Conference – and has the most delegates yet attending – since the partnership was formed in 2015. ICE is owned and operated by its founder and exclusive UK Member,CCICM, based in North Wales.
ICE Key Points
ICE was created predominantly to address the specific needs of the worldwide Financial Services sector, as well as the private and public sectors, for a highly-regulated and internationally-compliant network to deliver uniform, highest-quality, collections standards to all sectors and clients globally.
Other Key Points About ICE Are:
Clients include multi-nationals, lenders, governments and their departments, major healthcare and Higher Education bodies, public utilities, and many SMB/Es.
ICE is comprised exclusively of the largest and most highly-regarded recovery agencies, so offers the highest-quality and best-value-for-money services clients can expect.
It has access to 3,000 people in 90 partner offices in 128 countries, so distance, language, and time-zones are no longer barriers to effective international collections.
To guarantee excellence, compliance, and so maximum prospects of recovery, every Member is rigorously selected via thorough due diligence, auditing, and performance-monitoring.
Each Member works to the highest compliance standards from a centralised IT platform.
All overseas, pre-legal, recovery costs are charged on a ‘no-win no-fee’ basis to clients. Clients face no set-up charges whatsoever.

Korean Guest Speaker
Among the delegates, and a guest speaker, is new ICE Member Mr Howon Lee, the Attorney at Law of leading Korean legal group Debt Collection Korea (DCK). He visited CCICM’s HQ to discover more about how ICE operates while on a recent business trip to the UK.
Founded in 2014, from its office in Seoul, DCK provides many international debt collection services – with optimized remedies to maximize recovery ratios – and litigation in South Korea.
Relaxing Social Networking
Networking opportunities also include some social activities. Mr Hackman says: “Our traditional get-together in world capitals provides the perfect opportunity to communicate more meaningfully, build working relationships, and develop mutual trust over time.
“Our relaxing activities this year include visits to cultural attractions such as private tours of the world-renowned Van Gogh Museum and by boat of the City’s Canals, as well as dining at leading restaurants.”
Mr Hackman says his vision for ICE is to grow the business, largely through recruiting new agents and improved Marketing, Communications and Sales collaboration, over the next five years.
Seeking New Members & Agents
ICE is continually seeking debt collection agencies and/or law firms from a variety of other countries to join its network of market-leading Overseas Agents, or from its existing network to upgrade to become an ICE Partnership Member.
