AAA Collectors, Inc. was founded by Tom Barrett in March 1977. He is still the president and owner of the company. Tom has been in the collection business, in one capacity or another since the mid-1960's. He built the company from the ground up, starting with an office in Colorado Springs and one in Englewood.
Tom did most outside sales himself, building the client base with retail accounts (Dave Cook, Gart Brothers, May D&F), medical (Eisenhower Hospital, National Health Labs, Dr. Freid & Associates) and bad checks (Target, K-Mart and King Soopers). He also accepted second assignments from nationwide check recovery services such as Checkrite.
In 1981, he combined both offices and bought a building on S Lincoln Street in Denver. A new office was opened in Colorado Springs in February 1994 at Flintridge and Academy. That space was quickly outgrown and Tom purchased a building on Academy just south of Penrose Community Hospital in January 1998.
Lori Harding was initially with the company from 1978-1981. She declined to go to Denver when Tom moved both offices there and continued to gain collection experience for the next 13 years with Dynamic Adjustment Agency. In 1993, Tom contacted her with an offer to run a new Colorado Springs office and she rejoined AAA in February 1994 and has been with the company since that time.
