Ardent Credit Services has appointed Nataly Rapoport in the new role of risk and compliance director.
Rapoport has joined the debt collection agency (DCA), which collects early arrears and provides white label solutions, from Capita-owned Akinika Debt Recovery where she worked in a similar role for more than 10 years.
She holds a distinction level diploma in international compliance from Manchester Business School and has worked in compliance for 18 years.
John Ricketts, managing director of Ardent, said: “Staying ahead of the curve with regards to all aspects of risk and compliance is vital and I’m looking forward to working with Nataly.
“Nataly brings a wealth of experience at the highest level and is the perfect fit as we continue implementing our growth programme.”
Steve Murray, chief executive of Ardent, said the company’s focus is ensuring watertight client delivery: “Nataly will strengthen our senior management team and bring a fresh perspective to a key part of business performance.”
